About the Webinar
While employers are often eager to staff their operations and generate revenue, employers often overlook the legalities of the hiring process. Effectively navigating the legalities can require some forethought, especially when it comes to establishing the terms of employment and complying with anti-discrimination laws. This seminar will:
- Highlight the importance of written employment contracts, including the benefits of layoff and termination clauses for non-union employers;
- Outline the fundamentals of human rights legislation; and
- Review other hiring considerations, including pre-employment testing and pre-employment checks.
