MILTON, ON — A fall seminar from The Private Motor Truck Council of Canada looks to advance the conversation on a number of industry issues, including unjust dismissal, electronic logging devices, and the latest in need-to-know government regulations.
As part of the PMTC’s ongoing series of Cross Country Educational half-day conferences, this next event is set for Truro, Nova Scotia on Wednesday, Sept. 14.
The seminar, which runs from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m., will be co-hosted by the PMTC and Trucking Human Resource Sector Council Atlantic.
Electronic Logging Device mandate: This presentation from Transport Canada will provide attendees with the latest updates, including the updated stakeholder engagement process and update as far as timelines are concerned for a compliance and Grandfathering date.
Complying with Government Regulations: Regulatory requirements exist to govern vehicle standards, driver credentials, routes for over dimension and over weight loads, occupational Health & Safety, company registration, the safety of cargo, and tax reporting, to name just a few. Many of these requirements also change as vehicles travel from origin to destination. In this presentation from Davis Pier, attendees will gain a better understanding of not only what the requirements are, but why they are in place and how they were determined.
Termination of employment and unjust dismissal: This presentation by the Canadian Labour Affairs office, Atlantic Region, will include an explanation of the relevant provisions of the Canada Labour Code, as well as information about just cause and progressive discipline, how the Labour program handles complaints of unjust dismissal and an adjudicator’s powers. This will provide attendees with insight into an often misunderstood area of employment law, and will allow employers to ask questions from the experts.
Space is limited, so people are encouraged to register early by contacting Vanessa Cox at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration is just $50 for a PMTC and THRSCA member, and $125 for a non-member. Location details will be provided upon registration.
