Bill 148: Impacts to Ontario's labour laws and employment standards
On May 30, 2017, the Ontario government introduced legislation (Bill 148, The Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act) proposing significant amendments to the province's Employment Standards and Labour Relations acts. If passed, the legislation will have far-reaching consequences for Ontario's employers across all industry segments.
