TORONTO, Nov. 3, 2017 /CNW/ - Samfiru Tumarkin LLP is proud to announce the Saturday, November 4th debut of Employment Hour in 30 - a weekly 30-minute television program that will introduce millions of Ontarians to the employment rights they didn't even know they had.
Airing Saturdays at 10 a.m. ET on Global Television in Ontario, the program features prominent employment lawyer Lior Samfiru and host John Scholes tackling the most important facets of employment law that are far too often overlooked and ignored by both employees and employers. From grossly inadequate severance pay, to sexual harassment in the workplace, and employees being routinely mislabeled as independent contractors, Employment Hour in 30 will debunk the myths that have caused employees to miss out on their full workplaces rights and entitlements for years.
"Every day, I talk to dozens of workers in Ontario who are shocked to learn that they do in fact have rights in many situations, or are owed much more severance pay than the minimum amounts suggested by the Ontario Ministry of Labour," said Samfiru. "With Employment Hour in 30, we can inform, educate and address some of the misconceptions that people have about their workplace rights."
Employment Hour in 30 builds on the success of The Employment Hour, the live and interactive radio program airing regularly on AM 640 (Toronto), AM 900 CHML (Hamilton), CKNW AM 980 (Vancouver) and Newstalk 580 CFRA (Ottawa).
"Whether we are discussing the Severance Pay Calculator, maternity leave, wrongful dismissal, or what to do about a bad boss, we will thoroughly explore the employment issues that matter most to the residents of Ontario."
