What’s new with the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017?

By August 25, 2018 June 20th, 2019 No Comments

The year 2018 will see new protections for employees under the recently passed Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017. The act was passed by the Ontario legislature on November 22, 2017 to create more opportunity and job security for workers in Ontario in a changing global economy.

On January 1, 2018 we saw the general minimum wage rise to $14 per hour, putting Ontario on par with the national minimum wage of Britain after adjusting for the exchange rate. The minimum wage in Ontario will go up by a further dollar on January 1, 2019 to $15 per hour and will thereafter be indexed to an annual inflation adjustment every October 1st beginning in 2019.
