What is Ontario's Bill 148?
Bill 148, the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017, significantly amends Ontario labour and employment law, is now law. Earlier in 2017, the Ontario government issued its response to a Final Report drafted by 2 special advisors as part of their Changing Workplaces Review. This Final Report included 173 recommendations for amendments to Ontario employment and labour laws. The government declared that it has “a responsibility to address precarious employment and ensure Ontario workers are protected by updating the province’s labour and employment laws.”
As a result, the Ontario government introduced Bill 148, which incorporates amendments to the Ontario Employment Standards Act, 2000 (“ESA”), the Labour Relations Act, 1995 (“OLRA”) and the Occupational Health and Safety Act (“OHSA”).
