Staying on top of the latest health & safety regulations, training requirements, CSA Standards and industry best practices can be overwhelming and very confusing. And then there are the costs, in time and money, of doing the "right thing!"
Compounding that issue is the simple fact that many HR professionals are being asked to wear yet another hat - and assume the mantle of the Health & Safety "expert" in their place of business.
In this tongue-in-cheek presentation, HASCO Vice-President Derek Bumstead, navigates you through the wrong ways to approach health & safety in your workplace - from the attitudes of the people at the top of the corporate food chain, to the culture of health & safety in each workplace, to the training ALL Ontario companies and organizations are required to provide.
Be careful though! Because along the way, you might discover that the "right way" is actually the best way for your company...and you could save significant money in the process.
The added benefit of having safer, more loyal workers is just the icing on the cake.
Mergers and Acquisitions as well as large lending transactions raise a host of employee benefits issues, many of which can be avoided with proactive attention. Recent case law developments (such as the Sun Capital Partners case) underscore the importance of spotting and handling potential employee benefits issues well before the “deal” is about to close. This panel will walk attendees through the top employee benefits issues that commonly arise in an M&A transaction (including 401(k) and other qualified plans, health and welfare plans and executive compensation plans) and give practical tips for handling these issues on a proactive basis, starting with due diligence and continuing through and after the deal has closed.
