THUNDER BAY, ON, May 8, 2018
THUNDER BAY, May 8, 2018: The Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce welcomes the review of public holiday rules under the Employment Standards Act, 2000. The rules for holiday pay were changed by Bill 148, which came into effect on January 1st, resulting in significant concerns from the business community. A resolution calling for the Government to address this issue was adopted unanimously at the recent Ontario Chamber of Commerce AGM.
“The new public holiday rules do not provide fair compensation to all employees and add significant salary costs for employers,” says Charla Robinson, President of the Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce. “We are pleased that the Government has heard our concerns and is taking action to return to the previous calculation while they undertake this review and we will continue our advocacy to ensure a fair calculation.”
