The Government of Ontario is set to bring in the province’s strictest-ever rules for companies that recruit temporary workers, including a system for shutting down recruitment agencies that exploit staff. The Ministry of Labour announced the plans that include mandatory licensing for temporary help agencies, giving the province the power to stop firms from operating if they violate employment standards. The province will also build a team of inspectors to reveal and address the illegal treatment of workers and help recover unpaid wages.
