In today’s fast-moving world, many non-HR staff are expected to deal with a variety of workplace human resource issues. They may be asked to handle payroll and benefit administration, manage employees who are absent due to illness or other job-protected leaves, all while complying with Canadian privacy legislation.
Join us for this two-hour live instructor-led webinar as we introduce you to these basic human resources concepts.
  • An overview of compensation and benefits administration- where we will explore employee compensation categories from guaranteed to variable pay, as well as benefits such as vacation to bonuses. 
  • Managing leaves and illness- here we will look at Canadian federal and provincial legislation covering job protected leaves, and some basic do’s and don’ts.
  • Maintaining privacy & accurate record keeping- and finally we will discuss how to manage all these activities will ensuring compliance with federal and/or provincial privacy legislation.
