The 2014 National Survey On The Impact of Domestic Violence on Workers and Workplaces

provided evidence that has led to legislative changes in labour employment standards federally and in several provinces. To date, the following changes have been implemented:

  • Bill C-63 changes the Canada Labour Code to allow for 10 days of unpaid leave for federally regulated employees who are victims of family violence.
  • Bill 26 made changes to the Employment Standards Act in Ontario that will allow employees to take a job-protected leave of five paid days, and an additional five unpaid days, if they or their children have experienced domestic or sexual violence.
  • CREVAWC was involved in efforts to change Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety Act in 2010 through Bill 168, which introduced new responsibilities for employers to prevent and respond to violence, harassment and domestic violence in the workplace.
