Bill 27, Working for Workers Act, 2021

Bill 27, Working for Workers Act, 2021 recently passed first reading. If this bill is passed into legislation, then the following proposed changes will become law:

  • non-competition covenants will be prohibited;
  • employers with 25 or more employees will be required to have a written policy with respect to disconnecting from work;
  • there will be licensing requirements for temporary help agencies and recruiters.

Stuart Rudner was recently interviewed by CBC News and the Globe and Mail to comment on this new proposal.

While the bill has only passed first reading and needs to pass through several stages before receiving Royal Assent, it is important for employers and employees alike to be aware of the proposed changes as it will undoubtedly impact them if it becomes the law.
