The Labour Program sought input from employers and employees on a number of proposed regulations under Parts II and III of the Canada Labour Code. These included regulations related to equal treatment and temporary help agencies, the service of documents and regular rate of wages, and long-term disability plans. The Labour Program has prepared a discussion paper to summarize these initiatives and questions to help guide discussion.

  • employees in the federally regulated private sector

Discussion paper

The Labour Program asked employers and employees to provide input on the proposed regulations. The discussion paper included a summary of the proposed regulations, as well as questions related to each regulatory initiative. In particular, the Labour Program hoped to gather stakeholders' views on:

  • the appropriateness of the proposed regulations
  • whether the regulations will be difficult for stakeholders to follow
  • if any additional regulations should be proposed
  • any additional impacts on stakeholders that might be caused by the regulations

The input gathered through this process will be used to refine the proposed regulations, ensuring that final regulations take stakeholders' views and concerns into consideration.

  • See the Discussion paper for information on the proposed regulatory initiatives
