Thank you for visiting and subscribing to Ontario Employer Advisor. We are very pleased to offer a more informal and timely space for communicating developments on labour and employment issues. Our posts cover all aspects of our practice, including health and safety, human rights, hiring, dismissals, employment standards, immigration, privacy, collective bargaining, labour relations and everything else that impacts the workplace.
Our posts are focused on those charged with staffing and workplace issues. We will try to post on interesting developments and, more importantly, provide comments on practical strategies that can be applied to the workplace.
If something sparks your interest, please feel free to submit a comment, and if you have a question, please contact us any time. We would be pleased to continue the conversation.
