All three Know Your Rights Basics in one!
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS Basics Workshops:
1 HOUR & 30 MINS
Our most popular workshop focuses on providing participants with information about their rights at work under the Ontario Employment Standards Act. We discuss various topics throughout the workshop, such as minimum wage, break periods, hours of work and overtime, termination and severance pay, and more. We provide participants with the information and tools necessary to empower themselves to exercise their rights in their workplace. This workshop highlights many of the law’s exemptions, how they apply to workers, and where they can go for help when needed.
This workshop focuses on providing participants with general knowledge about the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) and how it applies to them and their co-workers. The presentation includes learning about safe work practices, your rights under the OHSA, how to refuse unsafe work, and more.
This workshop concentrates on the Ontario Human Rights Code, its history, how it applies, and the different criteria necessary to file a claim with the Human Rights Tribunal. This is a very interactive presentation with open and safe places for discussion.
All basics workshops are available in both French and English.
