Working for Workers Legislation – Three Things Employers Should Know 


In the face of changing policies and employer requirements, join us to hear from leading experts from KPMG, Sherrard Kuzz LLP, and Gay Lea Foods Co-operative Ltd for insights on how to navigate new policies on disconnecting from work, what this means for employers and employees, non-compete clauses, and what to expect in the future as the pandemic continues.

You will hear directly from a fellow manufacturer, Gay Lea Foods, as they delve into how they are developing an equitable policy for their business, and how operations have been adjusted to deal with the changing boundaries between home and the workplace.

Your most pressing questions will be answered: 

  1. What is disconnecting from work, and how does the new policy requirement apply to my business?
  2. How do I create a compliant disconnecting from work policy that meets my business objectives?
  3. How can I effectively protect business assets despite new prohibition of non-compete clauses?
