Bill 148 introduces significant amendments to Ontario’s Employment Standards Act, 2000 (“ESA”) and Labour Relations Act, 1995 (“LRA”), many of which took effect on January 1, 2018, with others coming into force on April 1, 2018 and January 1, 2019.

This webinar is designed to provide an overview of the changes to the ESA and LRA and provide practical tips to construction employers who wish to remain compliant with the new legislation.

Topics include:

  • Equal Pay for part-time, temporary and casual employees: understanding and applying the new law
  • Scheduling: policies and practices to comply with the new obligations 
  • Personal Emergency Leave: integration with existing leave policies and other paid entitlements
  • Vacation and Holiday Pay: how to calculate under the new regime
  • Record Keeping: what’s new and how to comply
  • Changes to Collective Bargaining and Labour Board Processes: strategic options to address labour relations challenges

Details coming soon to all OGCA members.

For those who were not able to attend the earlier webinar - Today’s Minefield in Construction - the recording and presentations will be made available on the member’s only portion of the OGCA website soon.
