If your organization is like most, your team is working harder than ever to stay current and comply with fast-shifting labour and employment laws. From expanding human rights protections to new workplace investigation requirements, ensuring compliance with these changes is important to attracting, retaining, and engaging the right employees in a highly dynamic talent marketplace.
Take the introduction of Bill 132 last year, legislation that amends the Occupational Health and Safety Amendment Act to strengthen protections against workplace harassment, bullying, and sexual violence. The amendments require employers to investigate incidents of workplace harassment or violence, regardless of whether the alleged victim files a complaint. Failure to comply could result in fines of as much as $500,000, and Ministry of Labour inspectors could force non-compliant employers to hire a third party to investigate harassment allegations.
While compliance may seem daunting at first, rest assured that with the right proactive advice, your organization can meet its HR law obligations, while also setting the stage for growth.
