The Law Commission of Ontario (LCO) is interested in your comments on our Vulnerable Workers and Precarious Work Interim Report. We are hoping to hear from workers, employers, community groups, worker or employer advocacy organizations, academics, lawyers, government policy-makers and all others with expertise in this area of the law or familiar with the experiences of vulnerable workers.
Please tell us:
What you would like legislators and other policy-makers to understand about vulnerable workers and/or the impacts of and ways to reduce precarious work when they make or implement laws, policies or practices,
Whether the recommendations proposed in the Interim Report would be effective and feasible in addressing the issues faced by vulnerable workers and would realistically improve their circumstances, and
Your suggestions on how to make the LCO’s recommendations more responsive to the needs of those who find themselves vulnerable to precarious work (that is, part-time, temporary or casual work with low wages, few or no benefits, little job security and minimal control over work conditions).
For more information about the Interim Report and the topic of vulnerable workers and precarious work, you can refer to the accompanying Background and Consultation papers, available online at http://www.lco-cdo.org/en/content/vulnerable-workers.
