Osler has launched its employment compliance stress test, a tool that helps organizations quickly identify significant areas of vulnerability within their employment functions.

 

According to Osler, its stress test takes no longer than four hours and provides the information needed to proactively avoid potential compliance- and litigation-related issues.

 

The test is available to organizations with operations and employees in Ontario. It involves a targeted review of key personnel policies and practices, focusing on troublesome "stress points" that repeatedly present challenges to businesses. It uses an internally developed compliance framework to evaluate employment practices in a quick and cost-effective manner.

 

The law firm advises organizations to take the stress test when faced with the following situations:

  • Whenever a business is worried about compliance
  • Whenever severance costs are too high
  • When preparing to report to the board of directors
  • When preparing for or adjusting to a strategic transition
  • When acquiring a new business

 

“We help you overcome the stress of compliance, and underlying threat of invasive investigations or costly litigation, by providing you with the information to proactively address potential issues before they become problems,” Osler said on its website. Questions about the test can be answered by Osler employment and labour partner Jason Hanson, the firm said.
