We will address questions like how part-time employees, freelancers, and remote work outside Quebec affect the calculation of this threshold. We will address the workplace and employment obligations triggered once the threshold is passed. The talk will also cover what kinds of documents, contracts, advertising, and software need to be translated. Compliance tips and resources will be shared.
