A pressing work schedule can impact preparedness for an unannounced Labour inspection. Now that the inspector has arrived, how should you react? Do you understand the inspection process, who could be involved, and the extent of an inspector’s authority? What are possible outcomes of the inspection and what are the follow up options?


This workshop will review the following Labour inspection aspects:

  • Inspection timing
  • Inspector powers / authorities
  • Inspection process
  • Orders and requirements
  • Inspection outcome
  • Inspection follow up

To ensure a thorough understanding, attendees are invited to submit questions during the workshop.
