As business owners, we sometimes think was can get away with cutting and pasting policies and procedures, copying someone else’s employment contracts and letting someone go without much notice.
Today that simply doesn’t cut it – especially in court…
And you don’t want to get it wrong either as the potential financial ramifications are not small!

- Infringement notices for a corporation are up to $6,300 per breach and for an individual up to $1,260 per breach*

Innocent decisions can result in unplanned and major costs… and ultimately could cost you your business!
