Labour standards changes may be on the way for federally regulated private-sector employers and their workers.

The federal government recently released a report on consultations it held last year and earlier this year on ways to update Part III of the Canada Labour Code to better reflect today’s work environment.

“It’s clear that ever-increasing global competition, rapid technological changes and socio-demographic shifts are fundamentally altering the way businesses operate and the way Canadians work,” said Employment Minister Patty Hajdu in a news release.
