Reform that Works: A Call for Evidence-Based Workplace Law Modernization in Ontario

    Ontario’s employers caution government on Changing Workplaces Review

    Over the past year, the Keep Ontario Working group of leading employers and sector associations in Ontario has worked to promote the need for evidence-based labour policies that strengthen, rather than compromise, the ability of employers to create jobs and grow the provincial economy.

    The formal submission, Reform That Works, constitutes the group’s response to the Changing Workplaces Review Interim Report prepared by Special Advisors C. Michael Mitchell and John C. Murray. The Interim Report proposes numerous recommendations for legislative change of the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (ESA) and the Labour Relations Act, 1995 (LRA). The scope of the changes proposed by the Special Advisors is immense and will impact nearly every aspect of the relationship between employers and employees in Ontario.

    Based on extensive analysis and consultation, the recommendations presented in this submission have been designed to improve legislation to support workers’ rights, create jobs and grow the economy. We look forward to working collectively throughout the modernization of workplace law that will make Ontario the best place in which to live, work and invest.
