Steering Through Change: A Handbook to Help Ontario Businesses Understand and Manage Bill 148
The Cambridge Chamber of Commerce, alongside the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) and management-consulting firm, MNP, have released a comprehensive handbook (Steering Through Change) to help Ontario businesses navigate the new costs and regulations associated with Bill 148, the Fair Workplaces Better Jobs Act. The handbook provides a summary of the incoming changes, outlines the potential risks to business, and identifies strategies to help mitigate the impact.
From substantial increases to the minimum wage, new scheduling provisions, reforms to the collective bargaining process and dozens of other changes, Bill 148 will present many challenges for employers.
The handbook includes important insights into the legislation and offers practical solutions and strategies to support businesses through the initial changes. As the implementation dates draw closer, employers will be able to turn to this handbook to understand the legislation and navigate change.
Each month The Chamber features members as our Profile Businesses of the Month! It’s a monthly feature favourite, where local businesses have the opportunity to tell other Chamber members – and the public – about who they are and what they do. View this months Member Profiles.
