Policy Development & Compliance

Employers in Canada must navigate a wide range of complex employment situations and maintain compliance with legislations that govern workplace practices.

The Components of Compliance

The below list contains the various components of compliance in Ontario and Canada.

Our experienced team is likewise able to assist with HR compliance outside Canada – please contact us for more information on where we are able to assist.

Regardless of where you are, we always recommend proactive implementation and work to ensure reporting requirements are met. After all, to be non-compliant is to risk substantial fines and penalties for your organization. Some of the main areas for consideration are:

  • Employee Manuals
  • Employment Terms Best Practices
  • Employment Terms Benchmarking
  • Occupational Health and Safety Act
  • Bill 168 (Harassment and Workplace Violence)
  • Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA)
  • Employment Standards Act of Ontario (ESA)
  • Canada Labour Code (CLC)
  • Policies & Procedures
  • Compliance Training

The Business Sherpa Group has built up a strong repository of experience, skills, resources and tools to help our clients address these requirements and meet the thresholds of implementation and reporting (including developing policies, conducting assessments, and training staff).
