How will the investigators role change?
What challenges will investigators need to address?
Beginning January 1, 2021 changes to the Canada Labour Code took effect and federally regulated workplaces and organizations began implementing the requirements of Bill C-65. These requirements focus on confidentiality and impact the expectations of investigations and investigation reports. In this webinar, we will take an in-depth look into these requirements and other questions about Bill C-65.
