In 2017, the government of Ontario introduced the “Fair Workplaces, Better jobs Act 2017 (Bill 148). This bill introduces significant amendments to The Ontario Employment Standards Act, the labour Relations Act and limited changes to the OHS Act. Many amendments came into force on 01 January 2018 and some as early as November 2017.
DCS has delivered several information bulletins and many training sessions on Bill 148 and how firms can comply.
Now that this legislation has been in place for almost 2 months we are still seeing firms failing to comply or failing to understand the impact these changes may have on their daily operations.
DCS has developed an informal 2-hour training session for managers and supervisors to learn more about this legislation. Contact us at 226 972 1539 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to book your session now.
