Bill 148 and Direct Funding: Information Session for Families Engaging Workers

On November 27th Bill 148, The Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, received Royal Assent and became law. Bill 148 affects everything from the minimum wage and public holiday pay, to how employees request scheduling changes, refuse shifts, and take leaves of absence.

Many families do not realize that this new legislation and employment law generally can apply to them and their relationship to workers they engage to provide supports to a loved one with a disability. Families face real risks if they don’t consider their legal obligations to workers or take steps to protect themselves and their families from liability.

Community Living Toronto is pleased to host disability and employment lawyers from PooranLaw who will deliver an in-person information and training session for people and families engaging workers for support.
