Effective January 2012, Manitoba Employment Standards have been amended to permit employers and employees to enter into individual "Flex-Time" agreements. Employers and employees will have increased flexibility to implement changes to the standard work week without paying overtime. This new “flexibility” can be of great benefit to employees and employers alike. There are also a number of pitfalls that every employer will need to carefully consider before rushing into individual flex time agreements. Find out about the changes and how your workplace could benefit from implementing flexible work schedules. Learn about the potential problems and difficulties with the new flex time arrangements and how to manage them in your workplace. Learn how your organization can develop and implement mutually beneficial flex time policies that meet the regulatory requirements while ensuring the needs of your organization are met.
