Congratulations to Suzanne Didiao!!  You are most recent winner to answer our Canadian trivia correctly and the 150th entry received.
This month concludes our run of “How well do you know your Canada eh” trivia contest.

Thank you to all our many subscribers who took part each month and participated in having some Canadian fun with us!
Our featured articled this month is by Nav Bhandal,  an associate from our Employment and Labour practice group. Nav provides a summary of the recent overhaul to the Employment Standards Act, 2000 and the Labour Relations Act, 1995 that is set to become law.  He provides full details of how the changes will impact business owners and employees with respect to minimum wage requirements, overtime rate application for employees who work multiple positions with the same employer into overtime hours, changes to paid vacation, equal pay for equal work for casual, part-time and seasonal workers versus full-time employees, changes affecting pay rates for public holidays and changes to rules governing leaves of absence.
He also provides practical guidance to follow towards assessing how the new changes to regulation will impact a company.
It is a real pleasure at this holiday time to say “thank you” for your continued support of our monthly e-Newsletter.
We wish you all the best for this holiday season and for good health, happiness, and prosperity in 2018.
