The bill is part of the Fair Workplace, Better Jobs Act, and will also include changes to personal emergency leave, equal pay for part-time, temporary, casual and seasonal employees; and up to 17 weeks off for domestic or sexual violence survivors.
The Government of Ontario will also be cutting corporate income tax rate for small businesses by 22%, lowering regulatory burdens and rewarding businesses with good compliance records by lowering their costs and reducing requirements.
