Over the coming year, several provincial governments across Canada already have or will be legislating major changes to existing labour regulations. These changes will lead to major adjustments in key areas such as, minimum wage, equal pay for equal work, expanded personal emergency leave, unpaid leave requests, and other key elements of existing labour regulations that impact the day to day operations for all retailers in Canada.
Increases to minimum wage in provinces such as Ontario, Alberta and Quebec pose challenges for retailers of all sizes, and other provinces are looking to follow suit. In response to these challenges, RCC is holding a special one-time forum to address the changes, discuss the impact and provide solutions for retailers. In this ½ day event, new Provincial labour requirements, Bill 148 (Ontario), changes to the Employee Standards Act will be reviewed in detail, and suggestions will be provided to retailers to accommodate these challenges. All sized retailers will come together to speak about how these changes impacts their day to day operations, and some of the solutions that they have implemented will be shared.
This forum offers a unique format which will allow RCC to adjust the direction of our content based on what our members need most. If you are interested in participating in this event, RCC wants to hear what is most relevant to you! If there are specific topics and/or items that you want to hear about, e-mail your thoughts and opinions to firstname.lastname@example.org, please title your e-mail “Minimum Wage Forum”. We will consider the feedback we receive as we finalize the agenda for this important discussion.
