PooranLaw has shared the following legal update on labour and employment reforms:
On October 23, 2018, the PC government introduced Bill 47, the Making Ontario Open for Business Act (“Bill 47”). If passed, Bill 47 will repeal a number of changes made by the Liberal government’s Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act (“Bill 148”). While Bill 148 provided some much-needed protection for Ontario’s most vulnerable workers, many aspects of Bill 148 posed significant challenges for charities, not-for-profit government funded agencies and people with disabilities receiving individualized/direct supports and their families. For the most part, Bill 47 addresses those challenges by simply reverting back to the legislation that existed before Bill 148 was passed.
