News & Updates

The News & Updates portal provides a consolidation of news all in one place including the following:  

Product Updates

When we make changes to product features or templates, we'll let you know.  

News

With so much news bombarding us these days, it's difficult to decipher what is important and how it applies to your business.
Many news outlets are over-posting and under-clarifying the take-aways, particularly when it comes to legislative news. We have to dig deep to understand if their posts are referring to actual changes or proposed changes - which can sometimes take years to become law. 

The HR Toolkit organizes news as follows: 

Legislated Updates

News related to proposed and passed legislation that affects Ontario, Alberta and BC employers.  Proposed legislation will clearly be marked as such in the headline. 

 NEW!    HR News

News related to trending HR topics

Case Law  Round up

News related to relevant litigated court cases about employment matters.

HR Articles

ConnectsUs HR practically no-nonsense articles for small business & HR consultants.

  • I just wanted to write to say that ConnectsUs HR™ for Consultants is truly a gift. I've been searching for this type of support with other service providers with no luck. The templates and Resource Center you have created are so helpful, and provide a comprehensive menu of topics, best practices and well-written content that would have taken months to create from scratch. In most cases, my clients don't want to wait long to see results. I am very thankful to have found your product that makes me look so good!

    Thank you again!

    A new and thankful customer
