first two of which are required to be paid days. Employees
would be able to use personal emergency leave days if
they are a victim or have been threatened with domestic
or sexual violence.
* Employers will be prohibited from requiring a certificate
from a qualified health practitioner for personal emergency leave.
Temporary Help Agencies: Employees must be provided
with one week's notice or pay in lieu of if an assignment that
was estimated to last three months or more is terminated
before its estimated end, unless another assignment of at least
one week is offered to the employee.
Enforcement: Employment Standards Officers can order
employers to pay wages directly to employees. Penalties for
contraventions may be increased by changes to the applicable regulations, with greater discretion given to Employment
Standards Officers. The Director of Employment Standards can
publish information related to a deemed contravention, accept
security for amounts owing, and issue warrants or register a
lien to collect money owing.

Return to Work Rights and Procedures: Amendments
will remove the six-month limitation on employees being
able to return to work after the commencement of a lawful
strike and require an employer to reinstate an employee at
the conclusion of a legal strike or lock-out. Employees would
also have access to grievance arbitration for the enforcement
of that obligation.
Just Cause Protection: Employees will be protected from
being disciplined or discharged without just cause by their
employer in the period between certification and the conclusion of a first contract, and in the period between the date
the employees are in a legal strike or lock-out position and the
new collective agreement.
■

Proposed Changes to the
Labour Relations Act, 1995
Card-Based Certification: There will be card-based union
certification for temporary help agencies, the building service
sector, and home care and community services.
Union Certification
Proposed changes will:
* Eliminate certain conditions for remedial union certification, allowing unions to more easily get certified when an
employer engages in misconduct.
* Make access to first contract arbitration easier, as well as
adding an intensive mediation component to the first contract arbitration process.
* Require the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB) to
address first contract mediation-arbitration applications
prior to dealing with displacement and decertification
applications.
* Allow unions to access employee lists and certain employee
contact information, if the union can demonstrate that it
has already achieved the support of 20 per cent of employees involved.
* Empower the OLRB to conduct votes outside the workplace,
including electronically and by telephone and to authorize
Labour Relations Officers to give directions relating to the
voting process and voting arrangements.
Successor Rights: Successor rights will extend to the retendering of building services contracts, and apply successor rights
to the retendering of other publicly funded contracted services.
Structure of Bargaining Units: The OLRB will have jurisdiction to change the structure of existing bargaining units within
a single employer where the existing bargaining units are no
longer appropriate for collective bargaining. Additionally,
the OLRB would be able to consolidate newly certified bargaining units with existing bargaining units under a single
employer where those units are represented by the same
bargaining agent.
