Employee Entitlements

Article Summary: 

This article discusses the changes to employee entitlements in Ontario, Canada, specifically the amendments made by Bill 148 and the subsequent repeal of many of those entitlements by Bill 47. Some of the significant changes include the increase in minimum wage, equal pay for equal work on the basis of employment status, and scheduling requirements. However, Bill 47 repealed most of these provisions, except for the three-hour rule, which requires employers to pay employees who regularly work more than three hours, even if they work less than three hours despite being available to work longer. The article warns employers to seek legal advice before changing or eliminating entitlements, as it could lead to a constructive dismissal claim by the employee.
