June 14, 2018

Since Bill 148 received Royal Assent in November 2017, HRdownloads has offered a lot of coverage on what the new legislation means, and what employers must do to comply with the changes. Although there has been lots of information provided on Bill 148, many important questions remain.

By now, most of the provisions of the Fair Workplace, Better Jobs Act, 2017 have come into force, and employers should be settling into the new routines of vacation, equal pay, and personal emergency leave. There are, however, still some changes to come in 2019, as well as provisions that are in force now, but which may still provoke some confusion among organizations.

As with any new legislation, it can be difficult to understand how each organization’s situation fits with the law. Even still, trying to adapt to new legislation can come with a lot of questions like, “What do I need to do to ensure my organization is compliant?” and, “What does all of this mean for my business?”
