Ontario to establish basic gig worker rights including $15 minimum wage for digital workforce | FULL

1 min read

Ontario Premier Doug Ford, alongside Labour Minister Monte McNaughton, announced “groundbreaking” legislation on Monday that would establish employment standards for gig workers, including $15 minimum wage and regular pay days.

It proposes to cover rideshare and delivery drivers, as well as others who are offered work assignments through digital platforms.

Ford added that it would make Ontario the first province in Canada to establish a minimum wage and other rights for the digital platform workforce.

Proposed rights within the bill include the guarantee that workers will get written information detailing how platforms’ algorithms work, how pay is calculated, how operators’ performance rating systems work and how operators collect tips.

The Digital Platform Workers’ Rights Act will be separate from the Employment Standards Act.
