Article Summary: 

Recent Changes To Employment Laws
Some changes include: New and extended leaves of absence for: Increased vacation entitlement for employees with more than five years of service.

April 1, 2018 On April 1, 2018, further changes to the Employment Standards Act will come into force to require equal pay for equal work.

January 1, 2019 As if the above wasn't enough for employers and employees to adapt to, on January 1, 2019 more changes will take place.

Other Changes The above commentary is applicable for many workers in Ontario, but there were also significant changes to labour laws for unionized employees and employers on January 1, 2018.

First, budgets might need to be reviewed to ensure there is sufficient money put aside to pay employees with the changes to the minimum wage, vacation entitlement, and leaves of absence.

Second, employment contracts may need some work to reflect the new changes.

Given the number of changes, it might be worthwhile to discuss these matters with a lawyer who is familiar with employment law.
