Overview:

Pending amendments to the Canada Labour Code and the introduction of the Pay Equity Act mean significant changes are on the horizon for employers in the federal sector.

Format:

In this Advantage CPD session, we will take you through the more significant amendments to the Canada Labour Code including:

  • Changes to working conditions
  • Amendments to Part II (Occupational Health and Safety)
  • Leaves of absence, terminations, and equal pay provisions

We will also review the incoming Pay Equity Act, and discuss the obligations of employers to:

  • Establish joint pay equity committees
  • Take steps to achieve pay equity
  • Develop pay equity plans

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this seminar, attendees will better understand potential changes affecting their workplaces as a result of these amendments to the Canada Labour Code, and have a foundation for understanding their obligations under the Pay Equity Act.

In addition to a Q&A panel discussion built into this session, our presenters will remain behind for any informal discussions you may wish to have.
