The first segment of the presentation will address hiring individuals with disabilities and the resources provided by the Discover Ability Network (DAN).

Persons with disabilities represent a large untapped talent pool. Many are highly skilled, educated, and want to contribute to the economy.  Many employers are aware of the benefits of diverse hiring, but do not know where to find qualified candidates who have a disability.  The Discover Ability Network is here to connect them for free.  This will be presented by Louie DiPalma, Vice President, SME Programs at the Ontario Chamber of Commerce and Kevin McShan, Regional Spokesperson for the Discover Ability Network (DAN). 

In the second segment of the presentation, Jeffrey Patterson from the law firm of Kavanaugh, Milloy will discuss employment law in Ontario.  In late 2017, the Government of Ontario passed the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017 which has been commonly referred to as Bill 148. Bill 148 makes some of the most significant changes to Ontario's employment laws in over a decade and a half. It changes how businesses in this province keep their records, schedule and pay their employees, and administer various benefits. These changes will impact almost every business in Ontario that has one or more employees.

During this presentation, you will learn about the changes made to Ontario's employment laws and how you can navigate the new changes such as the new paid personal emergency leave and scheduling restrictions.
