Article Summary: 

The article discusses the extensive amendments to the Employment Standards Act (ESA) in Ontario, which were introduced through the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017 (Bill 148). The amendments aim to address changing workplace trends, increase minimum wage, vacation pay, and introduce a new paid emergency leave requirement. The changes include an increase in the minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2019 and the introduction of mandatory paid leave for employees, among other provisions. The article highlights the impact of these changes on condominium corporations, even if they do not directly employ staff, as contractors may pass on increased labor costs.
