When: Tuesday, June 22 at 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Where: Virtual
How to Register: Please visit this link to register. You must register in advance.

When faced with a labour shortage, many employers in the agriculture sector turn to a temporary help agency (THA) for assistance. But did you know clients of agencies have legal obligations when using a THA? Before speaking with an agency, clients of agencies should find out what their responsibilities are under the ESA.

To help support Ontario’s agriculture sector, the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development (MLTSD) and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) are partnering to offer a session about employment standards as they relate to THAs. The session will provide an overview on:

  • the employment standards responsibilities of the agency and the client
  • things to consider when engaging a temporary help agency
  • the current THA inspection initiative
