Amendments to Bill 148, Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act 2017

Ontario Council sent comments to the Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs concerning the amendments to Bill 148, Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act 2017.

We are supportive of:

  • the increases to minimum wages
  • that an employee is an employee with the onus on the employer to prove otherwise
  • that much of Bill 26, Domestic and Sexual Violence Protection Act has been incorporated into a separate section on Domestic or Sexual Violence Leave

We are concerned about:

  • the pay transparency clauses.
