Bill 148 – The Fair Workplaces, Better Job Act, 2017 – has garnered considerable attention in the construction industry. Despite a proclamation that construction would be excluded, this Act has had considerable impacts on the construction industry.
Most notable are the provisions related to scheduling (scheduled to come into effect on Jan 1, 2019) and the creation of two paid emergency leave days. Click here to read our latest letter addressed to Labour Minister Kevin Flynn which follows up on our July 2017 letter and fully explains how these amendments will impact construction.
RESCON has taken every opportunity to educate all stakeholders of the potential impacts of these changes in an effort to give decision makers are fulsome understanding of how our sector operates and will be impacted.
