Ontario Proposes Significant Reforms to Pension and Employment-Related Statutes
Date: November 15, 2018
On November 15, 2018, the Ontario government introduced Bill 57, the Restoring Trust, Transparency and Accountability Act, 2018, omnibus legislation supporting key reforms outlined in the 2018 Ontario Economic Outlook and Fiscal Review (Fiscal Review), titled, “A Plan For the People,” which was also released on that date.
Bill 57 would, if passed, amend various employment-related statutes. Of particular interest to employers in the Municipal sector, we have published a detailed FTR Now on the proposed amendments to the Fire Protection and Prevention Act, 1997 (FPPA), which are outlined in Schedule 18 of Bill 57.
We are in the process of reviewing Bill 57 and the Fiscal Review in detail, and will be providing further updates and discussion of specific proposed changes in the coming days. In the meantime, should you have any questions related to Bill 57, please contact your regular Hicks Morley lawyer.
For more information of the FPPA proposals, read our publication, Ontario Government Tables Legislation Impacting Bargaining and Interest Arbitration in the Fire Sector.
