Three months in, where are we at?
At the end of 2017, COPA & CHHMA hosted their first HR event discussing several Employment Acts in Ontario that were updated effective, January 1, 2018. We’ll be hosting another follow-up event to discuss updates to Bills 148 and 177 on April 10, 2018.
Bill 148 – the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act – changes to the Employee Standards Act (ESA) and Ontario Labour Relations Act (OLRA) including Minimum Wage – effective January 1, 2018
When Bill 148, the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, came into effect in the New Year, it ushered in sweeping changes to Ontario’s labour and employment laws. Accordingly, it is absolutely crucial for employers to become familiar with the amended provisions and their potential impact on doing business in Ontario. Amendments will impact areas including minimum wage, vacation entitlement, holiday pay, overtime and personal emergency leave. In this session, we will be reviewing where we are at with this Bill, three months in.
We will also be reviewing other Employment Law changes that were announced after our December 2017 HR presentation.

- Bill 177 – Changes to OH&S noncompliance fines
