On December 2, 2021 Bill 27, the Working for Workers Act, 2021, received royal assent. Bill 27 amends a number of employment-related statutes and introduces significant changes for Ontario employers, including introducing mandatory disconnecting-from-work policies and creating an express prohibition on non-competition agreements for most employees. The current government has not stopped there, announcing on December 9, 2021 that it is exploring recommendations to improve working conditions for gig economy workers.
Join us on January 13, 2022 for an informative session in which we will review key features of Bill 27 and what it means for your business. We will also look ahead to future employment legislation.

QC | Please note, the concept of "recognition" or "accreditation" has been abolished. By doing this, the Barreau is trying to make it easier for lawyers to claim mandatory CLE credits without a formal accreditation process. It is now up to individual lawyers to determine the eligibility of a training activity and to declare the hours in their “Dossier de formation en ligne”.
