Bill 148: Your Questions Answered

May 10, 2018 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm

You may have heard of a little thing called Bill 148: Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017.  Impacting everything from the minimum wage to leaves of absence and contract work to scheduling, this bill has also put into effect significant changes to Ontario’s Employment Standards Act.

Not sure how this will affect your organization? You’re not alone! Because of the bill’s length and scope, there are a lot of questions about how its implementation will impact nonprofit employers and employees alike.

Join Social Venture Partners Waterloo Region, in partnership with BDO Canada, for our noon hour lunch and learn for an overview of the major changes to Ontario’s ESA, and have your questions answered!


Presented by Katelyn Weller, an Employment, Labour and Equalities associate at Gowling WLG, this session will include:

– The Minimum Wage Increase
– Contract Employees and Independent Contractors
– Leaves of absence
– The new equal pay for equal work rules
– Q&A opportunities
