HR Policy Global and Norton Rose Fulbright Release New Resources for Canada

HR Policy Global is excited to announce a new resource guide Enduring Risk in Canadian Employment Law – 2024A collaboration with John Mastoras and his team from Norton Rose Fulbright, the Guide provides analyses of several significant changes and additions to labor and employment laws which will reshape Canada's work landscape in 2024.
 
HR Policy Global’s take: The Guide provides HR Policy Global members with essential tools for managing their workforces in Canada. Employers should plan ahead to ensure their organizational policies and employment agreements comply with the new legislation.
 
Key topics include:

  • The new recruitment paradigm, a series of laws primarily adopted at the provincial level, including pay transparency, “Canadian experience” requirements, and the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the recruiting process;

  • The shifting target of Canadian termination liabilities analyzed a few new cases and their implications to employers;

  • Forced and child labor reporting requirements and the evolving role of HR in the reporting process;

  • Increasing pressure to ban non-disclosure agreements in Canada;

  • Misclassification risks on independent contractors; and

  • A quick review of recent Canadian employment legislation initiatives. 

Actions to take now: Businesses in Canada should review the Guide and make a plan to address how the new changes could affect their operations.
