Top Workplace Issues of 2018: Looking Back and Preparing for the Year Ahead

CPD for HRPA and CHRP Members

Lorenzo Lisi, Fiona Brown, Meghan A. Cowan and Michael F. Horvat 2018 was a year of change for the Canadian workplace. On January 1, 2018, the minimum wage in Ontario increased by 20% to $14/hour. Employers were planning for a number of other changes resulting from Bill 148 (the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017), the province’s largest labour bill in over a decade. Following the election of the Doug Ford-led Progressive Conservative Party, Bill 148 was put on the chopping block and replaced by Bill 47, the Making Ontario Open For Business Act, 2018. At the federal level, recreational cannabis became legalized in Canada on October 17, leaving employers to navigate new legislation and update workplace policies regarding cannabis consumption in the workplace. 

Join our panel of workplace law experts as they provide an update on the various legislative changes, reflect on the top labour and employment issues from 2018, and share their outlook on trending HR matters for the year ahead.

Topics include:

  • Legislative Update:
    • Bill 47 And Beyond:  An Update on the Changes to Ontario’s Labour and Employment Laws
    • The Pay Transparency Act and Pay Equity Act
    • Restoring Ontario's Competitiveness Act, 2018 
  • Top Labour and Employment Cases from 2018

CPD for Lawyers: 1 Substantive Hour
