Ontario fails to implement law to protect temp workers

The progressive conservative government has not created regulations necessary to enforce a law passed when the liberal party was in power that would ensure companies that use temps are liable for their injuries at the workers’ compensation board, the Toronto Star reports [1].

In April 2018, the liberal government enacted legislation enabling it to make regulations requiring the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board to impose the costs of an injury sustained by a temporary help agency worker on the client for experience rating purposes. But the liberals were voted out of office in June 2018, before it created those regulations.
