INFORMATION SESSION FOR FAMILIES ENGAGING WORKERS

Two sessions coming up in York Region. Click here for more info.

March 14, 2018 Etobicoke/York Region

On November 28th Bill 148, The Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, received Royal Assent and became law.  Bill 148 affects everything from the minimum wage and public holiday pay, to how employees request scheduling changes, refuse shifts, and take leaves of absence.

Many families do not realize that this new legislation and employment law generally can apply to them and their relationship to workers they engage to provide supports to a loved one with a disability.  Families face real risks if they don’t consider their legal obligations to workers or take steps to protect themselves and their families from liability.

Community Living Toronto is pleased to host disability and employment lawyers from PooranLaw who will deliver an in-person information and training session for people and families engaging workers for support.  These sessions will review:

  • The most significant aspects of the Bill for families in the DS Sector and the dates they will come into force;
  • How you determine whether these obligations apply to your relationship with your worker;
  • What your responsibilities are to a worker who is an independent contractor or an employee;
  • What steps you can take to protect your loved one with a disability and your family, and ensure positive relationships with your workers; and
  • Free resources to help you manage your worker relationship and ensure compliance with the law.

These sessions are FREE · Seating is LIMITED

RSVP online at mycommunityhub.ca

Greetings, Parents and Advocates!

It is extremely important that all parents/guardians of children with special needs know about various legal and financial issues that will arise with respect to your child(ren).  This could be now depending on their age or pre-planning for the future.  It also applies to anyone in the household with a disability.  Due to the importance of the topics we will be discussing that night we felt that it was essential that you receive a special invitation to attend this evening. We are looking forward to having you at this informative meeting.  Please bring anyone with you that you think might find this useful.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact C.L.A.S.S. at 705-435-4792 or email me at jlk.526@hotmail.com Click here for more details.
