FIRST LOOK: Big Changes Coming to Ontario Employment Standards and Labour Relations Laws

In February 2015, Ontario's Minister of Labour appointed noted labour and employment lawyers Michael Mitchell and John Murray (also a retired judge) as special advisors to lead the Government's "Changing Workplaces Review". Their mandate was to hold public consultations focusing on how the Employment Standards Act, 2000 and Labour Relations Act, 1995 could be amended to best protect workers while supporting businesses in our changing economy. Following closely upon the release of their Report[1] in late May and its 173 recommendations, the Minister on June 1, 2017 introduced Bill 148, the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017, which, if passed, would enshrine in Ontario law a great many of these proposals.
