Dealing with accusations of professional misconduct as a teacher

Professional misconduct among educators in Ontario can take on different forms, and the severity can range from allegations of harm done directly to students to acts that could be detrimental to the profession. Misconduct charges against educators do not always involve actions that occurred on campus, nor do they always involve members of the school or college community. Unfortunately, almost all allegations of misconduct are severe and could have dire consequences -- even if there are no grounds for them. If you are a teacher, you have most likely worked extremely hard to reach your professional status. Allegations of misconduct after your…

Fraud incidents in Ontario becoming more prevalent

There is a new law on the books that makes it illegal to sell anything related to utilities by going door to door. The Consumer Protection Act in Ontario was recently amended to clearly state that things like air conditioning, water treatment units, purifiers, duct cleaning, furnaces and the like can't be peddled by knocking on someone's door. Some people have been scammed by fraud associated with these types of sales. The best thing for people to do, according to the authorities, is to shut the door. Fraud can also happen over the phone and on the internet. Fraud cases have been…
