Workplace rules and practices evolve continuously. As an employer, you need to be aware of new developments in labour and employment law, regardless of how many employees you have. Effective human resource strategies depend on it.

We’re going virtual for this year’s employment law update. This webinar series will take place over two consecutive half-day morning sessions and will inform you of recent developments in the law and help you learn how to deal successfully with the issues they raise. The MLT Aikins Labour Update is designed for both unionized and non-unionized employers. We’ll get you up-to-date on changes to the rules and help you develop proactive human resources policies.
