Bill 148 & Bill 47: Understanding the changing labour landscape

by Cristina Tomaino

In our blog immediately following the Ford government’s announcement of the Making Ontario Open for Business Act we outlined the notable proposed amendments to the Employment Standards Act, 2000 and the Labour Relations Act.

CCPartners is now pleased to provide a comprehensive summary of the proposed amendments. For employers who may be confused by the changing landscape of workplace legislation in Ontario, this guide traces the evolution of the Employment Standards Act, 2000 and the Labour Relations Act beginning before the introduction of Bill 148 up to the potential impact of Bill 47.

We also offer our expert commentary and recommendations for employers in responding to their changing obligations under the legislation.

While we believe that the Making Ontario Open for Business Act is good news for employers, it is still crucial that employers continue to comply with the requirements of Bill 148 until the proposed repeal comes into force. Employers should also be sure to review existing policies in anticipation of the repeal of Bill 148. The lawyers at CCPartners can assist you in preparing for the changes likely to be implemented and navigating the legislation.

CCPartners will continue to update you on any developments with respect to Making Ontario Open for Business Act.
