Working for Workers (Bill 27) - Employment Lawyer on Right to Disconnect, Non-compete Ban


The Government of Ontario has proposed legislation this week that would give employees in the province the right to disconnect after their work day is done. It would apply to companies with 25 or more employees.

It is called the Working for Workers Act (or Bill 27). The legislation will also ban employers from putting a non-compete clause or non-competition clause in employment contracts, which typically try to stop former workers from joining the competition. These clauses are generally ineffective anyway.
