Employees are being encouraged to put their devices away after hours, and there's a lot to unpack in terms of how this will affect Ontario businesses. In this on-demand webinar, our panel of professionals discuss the province's new Right to Disconnect legislation. Among other key issues, you will learn about updates regarding new guidance from the Ontario Employment Standards Branch, specifically with respect to policy requirements. In addition, you will also hear from employment lawyers from France, Portugal, Ireland and Italy, where similar legislation has been in place for some time.
