Are You On Top of Your Employee Benefits Package?

We all know that business owners tend to take on a lot of different roles within their business. It’s the nature of the beast. But sometimes you, or one of your team, end up taking on a role that isn’t in your wheelhouse of expertise and you manage it as best you can. Managing employee benefits and the associated risks well is so important. Here’s a great checklist to work through with your employee benefits broker to make sure you are on top of things. Get in touch with your client service partner to get more information.

We encourage our clients to review their benefits program annually with their broker to ensure that they are properly managing the employee benefits administrative process.

The objective is to confirm that the employees are receiving the coverage for which they qualify and that the company has documented information on file in the event of any potential future employee claims dispute. If defensive measures have been incorporated into the administrative process, potential legal liability can be mitigated or eliminated.

Ontario Economy Healthy according to Ipso and RBC

According to Craig Wright, RBC Senior Vice President, Chief Economist and Sean Simpson, Vice President, Ipsos Public Affairs the Ontario economy is healthy.Craig Wright and Sean Simpson spoke at a breakfast hosted by the Oakville Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, January 10, 2018.

Big issues effecting the Ontario Economy were NAFTA, Ontario’s Regulation of the Housing Market and the implementation of the $14.00 minimum wage.

60 percent of Canadians believe Trudeau is effectively managing our relationship with the Trump government, including the NAFTA negotiations. Mr. Wright predicts that NAFTA will be ripped up, even though the preference would be to tweak the existing agreement. Should NAFTA be terminated, Ontario’s economy is not expected to suffer, because trade is balanced between our countries.
