Legislative Newsflash Ontario - Employment Standards - Nov 2018

Publication date:
November 20, 2018
Article Summary: 

The article discusses the introduction of the Making Ontario Open For Business Act, 2018 (Bill 47) by the Ontario government on October 23, 2018. The purpose of this legislation is to repeal certain amendments made by the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017 (Bill 148) that were causing employers unnecessary burden and concern. If Bill 47 becomes law, it will reverse several recent amendments to employment legislation, including freezing the minimum wage at $14 per hour until at least October 1, 2020, reducing the number of unpaid sick days, allowing employers to differentiate pay rates based on employment status, and repealing new scheduling requirements. The changes are expected to be beneficial for the condominium industry, alleviating financial and administrative difficulties caused by the previous legislation. The timeline for Bill 47 to become law is expected to be before January 1, 2019.
