Bill 18 - Changes to OHSA Definition of Worker

On November 6, 2014, the government passed Bill 18, the Stronger Workplaces for a Stronger Economy Act, 2014. The Bill amends a number of Ontario’s labour and employment statutes. Specifically pertaining to occupational health and safety, the Bill expands the definition of worker to ensure Occupational Health and Safety Act coverage for unpaid co-op students and other unpaid learners, which will give them protection under the OHSA such as the right to know about workplace hazards and the right to refuse unsafe work.
