Ontario Special Advisors Make 173 Recommendations in their Final Report on the Changing Workplace

Murray) to review the modern-day workplace and to consider whether the Ontario Labour Relations Act, 1995 (“OLRA”) and the Ontario Employment Standards Act, 2000 (“ESA”) require amendments to reflect workplaces as we know them today (the so-called “Changing Workplaces Review”). The Review was initiated to deal with the government’s primary concerns with key workplace-related issues, including non-standard working relationships, the expanding service sector, workplace diversity, technological change and globalization, and trade liberalization.
