New rights for workers in Ontario

Workers in Ontario have won tremendous improvements to labour laws in this province.

One of these wins is that employers (under provincial jurisdiction), can no longer request doctors notes from workers when taking sick days (https://www.thestar.com/news/queenspark/2017/06/08/sick-notes-to-be-banned-in-ontario-under-proposed-workplace-legislation.html).

The Ontario Federation of Labour has produced a booklet that outlines the new labour law changes. To download the booklet, visit: http://ofl.ca/wp-content/uploads/1121-Know-Your-New-RIghts-Then-and-Now-web.pdf
