Editor’s note: The Ontario government passed Bill 47 on Nov. 21. The Making Ontario Open for Business Act received royal assent the same day.

Payroll professionals in Ontario will have to adjust to more employment standards changes if proposed amendments become law.

The provincial government has tabled a bill that would repeal a number of amendments to the Employment Standards Act, 2000 that the previous government implemented earlier this year through Bill 148, with some changes scheduled to take effect in 2019.
