Employment Standards for the Taxi Industry – February 20, 2014

My motion for improving employment standards for the Taxi Industry.

LS26.1 4 – Motion to Amend Item (Additional)
“That City Council request the Province of Ontario to enact regulations under the Employment Standards Act, 2000 which would ensure that all taxicab drivers are entitled to minimum wage and other employment protections (i.e., entitlement to overtime pay, public holidays, and holiday pay), regardless of whether or not the taxicab driver is leasing a taxicab or is considered an employee for the purposes of the Act.”

The motion carried.
