Going Full Circle


Deborah HowdenThe condominium community in Ontario saw many hefty legislative reforms between November 2017 and April 2018. Those changes were effected primarily under the amended Condominium Act, 1998, the new Condominium Management Services Act, 2015 and the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017 (“Bill 148”), though there were other statutory amendments impacting condominiums . And just as the industry was adjusting to the overabundance of legislative change, many of the employment law reforms were swiftly clawed back, effective January 1, 2019.

Specifically, on November 21, 2018, the provincial government passed Bill 47, the Making Ontario Open for Business Act, 2018. Bill 47 was the current government’s reaction to the recent amendments to both the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (“ESA”) and the Labour Relations
Act (“LRA”) introduced under Bill 148. This article only focuses on certain  of the ESA changes.
