    We are pleased to announce that Compliance Day™ will be coming to Brandon in May! This is the first time that the Compliance Day™ seminar has been held outside of Winnipeg.

    We will be running two concurrent streams, allowing attendees to attend the stream that is relevant to their area of responsibility without having to sit through sessions which may be of less relevance to them.

    2014 Compliance Day™ Topics

    General Topics

    Business Immigration – Every year many Canadian employers hire temporary foreign workers to help address skill and labour shortages. Bringing temporary foreign workers into Canada can be somewhat complicated, and depending on the process can involve several steps. We will outline the various steps that can be involved in bringing a temporary foreign worker into Canada, some of the main foreign worker programs available, and will address employer compliance with immigration laws and how to avoid the “blacklist”.

    When the Regulators Come Calling – Regulatory representatives can show up at your place of business with or without a warrant to investigate or inspect documents, incidents or activities. When the regulators are at your door, you need to be able to react in real time. This presentation will address regulatory compliance generally and the systems, policies and people you need to have in place now to prepare for a regulator’s visit.

     

    Stream 1 – Labour and Employment Compliance

    The Employer’s Duty to Accommodate Illness and Disability – This presentation will assist employers in carrying out their obligations to employees who request workplace accommodation, particularly due to an illness or disability. The presentation will explain what the employer’s duty to accommodate is, what steps can be taken in managing a workplace accommodation, and to what extent the employer must accommodate.

    The Emerging Concept of Accommodation of Family Status in the Workplace – The employer’s duty to accommodate employees based on their “family status” is a hot new human rights law topic that has received much attention in the last few years. The presentation will explore what an employer should consider when an employee requests a workplace accommodation arising out of child care or other family needs.

    Stream 2 – Tax Compliance

    The Tax Man Cometh: Part II – This session discusses in detail the audit and appeal process, including collection proceedings, with both the federal and provincial taxation authorities.

    Top Five Tax Compliance Issues – This session reviews frequent areas of non-compliance for individuals and corporations in connection with corporate reorganizations, commodity taxes, use of trusts and U.S. tax.
