Your Presenter: Ryan Conlin
Legal Basics and Specific Actions You Can Take to Prevent Reprisal Claims and Avoid Costly New Penalties under the Tougher New Section 50 Rules that Prohibit Employers from Intimidating, Dismissing or Imposing Penalties on Employees for Exercising Rights under OHSA
One thing is certain: the tougher new Section 50 anti-reprisal rules — just enacted as part of Bill 160 — have an IMMEDIATE and direct impact upon your safety program.
Under the tougher new anti-reprisal provisions, MOL Inspectors can now refer OSHA reprisal complaints to the Labour Relations Board for investigation. The OLRB now has the power to award significant damages … and can require an employee who has been terminated to be reinstated.
Make no mistake: these changes will almost certainly result in an increased number of employee complaints against employers … an increased number of anti-reprisal investigations … and an increased number of penalties against employers for Section 50 violations.
