Changes to the Employment Standards Act – Webinar Recording

Changes to the Employment Standards Act

On January 1, 2018, many provisions of the Ontario Government’s Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act (Bill 148) will come into force. While changes to the minimum wage have dominated the headlines, there are many other important provisions that will impact employers.
