As part of Access to Justice Week in October, CLEO is partnering with Connecting Ottawa on a CPD-accredited webinar presentation on “Unsafe workplaces and low pay: The law and health and safety issues faced by low-income workers in Ontario.”

Many communities – including Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, seniors, recent immigrants, Black and racialized people, and 2SLGBTQIA people – have disproportionate numbers living on low incomes. These communities are also over-represented in low-paying jobs. Working in public-facing service jobs, support occupations, temporary labour, and the gig economy, many of these individuals face unique health and safety challenges in their workplaces and are often unaware of their rights. 

This session will discuss the unique health and safety issues being faced by gig and low-wage employees, their rights, and what recourse is available under current employment law.

Date and time: Tuesday, October 25, 10:30 am -12:00 pm

Speakers: Chetan Muram, Staff Lawyer, Workers Health and Safety Legal Clinic

This session contains 1 hour EDI professionalism content
