- Provide a brief update on recent ESA amendments
- Review recent Ministry of Labour trends in prosecutions and fines
- Examine the limitation periods under the ESA and common law related to wage and hour claims
- Discuss ethical issues related to negotiating resolutions of ESA claims with employees
