Or
Wednesday, September 14, 2016 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM
On March 8, 2016, the Ontario Legislature passed Bill 132, the Sexual Violence and Harassment Action Plan Act, which amended a number of statutes by adding provisions regarding sexual harassment and sexual violence. In particular, Bill 132 included a series of changes to various provisions of the Occupational Health and Safety Act. These amendments, which will be in force on September 8, 2016, could profoundly change how workplace harassment is addressed in Ontario workplaces and create new and challenging issues for employers.

 

2 ACCESSIBILITY FOR ONTARIANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT – COMPLIANCE

Wednesday, September 28, 2016 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM
In 2005, the Ontario Government passed the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act “AODA” to make Ontario accessible by 2025.
Accessibility standards have been created as part of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. These standards are rules that businesses and organizations in Ontario need to follow to identify, remove and prevent barriers so that people with disabilities have more opportunities to participate in everyday life.

 

3 EFFECTIVE LABOUR MANAGEMENT RELATIONS IN THE BROADER PUBLIC AND NON FOR PROFIT SECTOR WORKPLACE ENVIRONMENTS

Wednesday, October 5, 2016 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM
Ontario has a history of reasonably good labour relations, with some periods of conflict. In general, there have been fewer work stoppages in Ontario’s BPS than in the private sector.
Employment has increased steadily in the past two decades across the major BPS sectors and industries, including education, health and social services, and public administration. Over the period from 2000 to 2011, Ontario public-sector employment in health care and social services increased by 39 per cent and in education by 34 per cent. By 2011, Ontario BPS employment accounted for just over 17 per cent of total employment in Ontario.
About 70 per cent of BPS employees are unionized — a far higher percentage than the roughly 15 per cent unionization rate in the private sector.
This high level of unionization produces a two-way street that requires joint oversight to foster effective union-management relationships. Any organization that wants to change the way in which services are delivered must work with the people who deliver those services and with the unions that represent those people.
This session has been designed for individuals that currently work in a unionized workplace environment.

 

4 EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT OF WORKPLACE CONFLICT

Wednesday, November 16, 2016 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM
Conflict is inevitable in any workplace. In any size of organization, dealing with conflict is part of your day-to-day responsibilities. The ability to recognize and understand the causation of conflict, to assess and minimize the risk and/or impact of conflict, and to effectively resolve conflicts will serve you well as an organizational leader. You will be exposed to alternative approaches to minimizing or avoiding conflict in the workplace and leave with a general understanding of the importance of seeking common ground for early resolution and for achieving mutual gain.
The participant will acquire the fundamental skills to enhance their leadership role and assist them in looking at issues with a different perspective.

This session will provide to you, best practice techniques and tools on how to meet your obligations.

 

2 WSIB CASE AND CLAIMS MANAGEMENT

Organizations are challenged with the complexities of a never ending evolving change to our Workplace Safety and Insurance reporting obligations here in Ontario.
