Amend Bill 139- New Rights for Temporary Workers

92 Signatures Goal: 100

Bill 139 will establish a new part of the Employment Standards Act that will apply special rules for the staffing services industry. If this bill is passed, it will eliminate the elect to work exemptions related to notice of termination and severance pay. When this regulation is passed, it will mean that elect to work employees will be entitled to notice of termination (or termination pay in lieu of notice) and severance pay under the ESA. We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now to 1. Recognize there is no "employment" when the employee is inactive (not on assignment). 2. Not impose a different and higher legislative standard on staffing firm employers in comparison to other industries in North America. 3. Recognize that the Act should not dictate or attempt to interfere with established contractual agreements between staffing firms and their clients. We urge the Government of Canada to suspend further efforts on the proposed bill pending a review of the key areas above.
