When you know your rights in the workplace, you can be part of making sure you and your co-workers are treated fairly!
After 20 years of outdated labour and employment laws, the Government of Ontario introduced the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act in 2017. This was a result of many hard-fought struggles and the collective voice of millions demanding immediate action to modernize the Employment Standards Act and the Labour Relations Act.
Workers made significant strides toward raising the standard of work across the province.
The Ontario Federation of Labour and community partner The Fight For $15 and Fairness want to be sure that workers across Ontario know their rights in the workplace.
