Fair Workplaces Townhall
Fair Workplaces Townhall
We have heard repeated concerns from members about the potential impact that Bill 148, the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act will have on their operations.

To assist our members, we have organized a Townhall Discussion on Bill 148 for business owners and operators to provide insight into the potential implications of the new regime. The event will focus on clarifying provisions of the Act as well as collecting feedback to help frame the conversation around this legislation.

The event will have two panelists:

Karl Baldauf - Vice President of Government Relations and Policy at the Ontario Chamber of Commerce
Karl will speak on the Economic Impact Analysis on Bill 148 and potential implications for businesses.

Kyle Burgis - Lawyer at Minken Employment Lawyers
Kyle will address how businesses will be expected to comply with the new legislation from an employer perspective.

Please note that this is a FREE event for York Region Chamber/Board of Trade members only.
