PRO Act Could Mean Major Change for Workers' Rights and Labor Negotiations
Employers and business owners should be well-versed in the proposed law that will change the nature of work in the United States for the foreseeable future. The PRO (Protecting the Right to Organize) Act is set to shake up some of the traditional fundamentals of work created by the National Labor Relations Act of 1935, giving more power to workers with expanded labor protections and rights to organize and collectively bargain in the workplace.

Active Shooter Webinar
Active Shooter Incidents - What You Need to Know to Avoid Making a Bad Situation Worse
As we slowly come out of COVID-19 shutdown, we are beginning to see incidents of active shooters on the rise again. The social conditions that drive these horrific events are not getting any better; in fact, they may have gotten worse in the past year or so. Having a response plan in place will give your employees and other occupants guidance on how they should react during the situation. A good plan will increase the chances that their reactions will be consistent with what your organization, and emergency service responders, want them to do. The objective is to avoid making a bad situation worse through panic and inappropriate reactions. Our webinar will give you the framework to develop your plan.

Cargo Theft Webinar
Secure Logistics - Cargo Theft & Supply Chain Security Solutions
In 2011, the Canadian Trucking Alliance commissioned an independent study that estimated cargo theft had a $5 billion impact on the Canadian economy. Today that estimated dollar value is significantly much higher since cargo theft rates have skyrocketed in the past eight years, with the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) being Canada's cargo theft capital. It is essential for shippers, manufacturers, and commercial transportation companies to implement cargo crime mitigation solutions to avoid being a victim. This presentation will provide an overview of the current problem and discuss security solutions that can help mitigate cargo crime.
