The Ontario Government says it is seeking public input on impending changes to employment and labour law rules associated with workers in industries that currently may not be covered by employment standards.

Businesses in the area have until December 1, 2017 to share their ideas as part of the public consultation, which the government says is part of a broader review of the Employment Standards Act special rules and exemptions, as well as Labour Relations Act exclusions.

The first phase of the consultations is said to focus on eight occupations that are currently exempt from minimum employment standards.

Including in that list are: architects, domestic workers, homemakers, IT professionals, managerial and supervisory employees, pharmacists, residential building superintendents, janitors and caretakers, and residential care workers.

The government says it is also reviewing rights under the Labour Relations Act for domestic workers.
