If you have a question, inquiry, would like to book training or schedule an appointment with our Employer Advisors, call us. We can decide together what will appropriately fit your business needs.
Our Employer Advisors are happy to visit your work site. If there are a number of people in your organization for us to meet with, a business location site visit can be helpful. Our OEA Advisors travel throughout the province. Where overnight travel is required by the OEA Advisor, the Employer is invoiced directly for those travel expenses.
To seek assistance with an individual file please call our general office number at 902.442.9366. You will be assisted through our intake process and an OEA Advisor will call you by the next business day. We will initially attempt to answer your immediate questions; however, if longer or more complex support is required, your file is assigned to an Employer Advisor.
If we believe the file support you require is outside our scope or that you would benefit from legal advice we will advise you.
We offer general group and customized training for employers on a cost recovery basis. Most of our training sessions are held at our office in Bedford, NS.
We also host an Annual 2-Day Employer Conference.
Customized Training can be developed by OEA and arranged at an Employer's worksite or for a Business Association. Some costs do apply. Click here to find out more.
OEA welcomes the opportunity to consult with employers and business groups around the province every year. We use the feedback to advocate for system change and improvements. If there is an issue you believe we should be looking at, let us know. Call us! - 902-442-9366
