Health and safety promotion is an important pillar of OHS management, and we have several training and communication channels in place to keep your management team and workers informed and protected. We make sure to cover everything from safe motherhood programs and the reassignment of pregnant workers to the management process when an employee suffers a workplace injury.

Our approach is proactive and our solutions are tailor-made, allowing you to focus on what really matters: the success and well-being of your business and your employees.

Pay Equity

An effective pay equity process: essential for solid labor relations.

An effective pay equity process is just as important for your labor relations, your attractiveness as an employer, your organizational culture and your compliance with the CNESST.

A reminder of the law

All employers under provincial jurisdiction with 10 or more employees must carry out a pay equity exercise within the 4th calendar year. With the recent changes to the law, evaluation has become complex and cumbersome. To remain in good standing, the pay equity evaluation must be reviewed and posted every 5 years.

We specialize in the management of CNESST obligations, and ensure that every employer benefits from precise and rigorous follow-up. We make sure you’re in good standing for every assessment year, giving you total peace of mind.

What we do:

  • Production of your DEMES;
  • Completion of initial pay equity exercise;
  • Production of periodic maintenance assessments;
  • Using the software package;
  • Category identification.

 

Compliance with the 1% Training law

The “1% Training law” is a golden opportunity for companies looking for informed, qualified talent. It does, however, require rigorous administrative management.

All employers with a payroll of $2 million or more must monitor and account for their training expenditure. Which ones are eligible? A wide variety of activities are eligible. Our team takes care of all regulatory requirements and activity eligibility criteria. No more administrative hassles, no more unclaimed or lost money.

We can also help you optimize your skills development plans, so that you can make the most of this advantageous law. In fact, it’s not enough to offer training and record these expenses. A clearly defined process, in line with legal requirements, is essential to ensure that your training expenses are valid. That’s why we’re here to help you avoid unpleasant surprises that could result from a Revenu Québec audit. By working with us, we can help you improve your process and its documentation, ensuring compliance and peace of mind for your business.

Are you worried about accounting for eligible training and keeping all supporting evidence? Or is it a real headache? Our experts can help you apply for the Certificat de qualité des initiatives de formation (CQIF). Holders of a CQIF are exempt from having to keep track of their training expenses, retain their proof of training, and are no longer required to undergo audits by Revenu Québec.
