LABOR AND EMPLOYMENT LAW AND OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY - Whether you work in labour relations or occupational health and safety, this training is for you! On October 6, 2022, new provisions on vocational rehabilitation came into force, expressly integrating into the AIAOD the concept of the employer's duty to accommodate a worker with a disability resulting from his or her employment injury. This new regime, which has been broadened to promote reintegration into the workplace, is nevertheless restrictive for employers. Increased powers have been given to the CNESST, which will become the "project manager" of the accommodation exercise. During this training session, we will shed light on the duty to accommodate and its limits, from a practical perspective that will enable you to interact with the CNESST in an informed manner in your rehabilitation files.

The document that legalizes this agreement is called a transaction, which is subject to the rules of contract law. The writing of this agreement is important!

Managing absenteeism

Absenteeism is a growing concern in any business. Replacement costs, shuffling employees to fill vacant positions, and loss of productivity are just some of the factors that force any thriving business to control absenteeism as much as possible. A casual approach leads to even more serious consequences: the loss of motivation among workers who are not delinquent absentees.

Telework: What employers need to know

LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT LAW AND OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY - Telework is here to stay, and even though labour laws were not developed for this mode of work organization, they apply. This training will allow you to learn about your obligations and the legal issues related to telework, especially since the Act to modernize the OHS system adds new obligations for employers concerning the protection of workers' psychological health and the risks of exposure to violence in the workplace, including domestic violence.

When doctors get between you and your human resources

HR managers need to ensure that their organisation can count on able employees, while physicians are expected to establish a trusting relationship with their patients.
