Provincial Business Update
How Has Bill-148 (Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act) Impacted Your Business?
The Dufferin Board of Trade and the Ontario Chamber Network are seeking grassroots data on the impact of Bill 148, the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, which amended the Employment Standards Act and the Labour Relations Act.
How has the increase to the minimum wage, new scheduling provisions, expanded personal emergency leave, equal pay for equal work, and other changes impacted your business? 

This information will be summarized in a document to be shared with the government in order to advise them on how to bring balance back to labour legislation in Ontario. 

The Dufferin Board of Trade is looking for specific, statistical information about the financial, legal, and administrative impacts of Bill 148 on your business since January 1, 2018. Your name or contact information will not be collected, and all data will be presented in aggregate. 

To share how Bill 148 has impacted your business, please use this form.

Your input is greatly appreciated.
