Liability Laws

Employers’ legal responsibilities:

A new amendment to bill C-45 specifies that fines up to $100,000 and/or imprisonment can result if an organization is convicted of negligence in the workplace.

The criminal codes declare that, “Every one who undertakes, or has the authority, to direct how another person does work or performs a task is under legal duty to take reasonable steps to prevent bodily harm to that person, or any other person for that work or task.
