Robert D: If Bill 139 is passed, then those workers who are considered as contract, temp, will get more rights under employment standards, which will hopefully include severance.

Many who are contract workers are denied many rights under employment standards and just because an employer wants to deem someone as contract or self employed, they may not be so deemed.

Anyways approximately 37% of all workers today do not have access to the many rights workers fought and died for.

So I guess my point is that if the councillors want severance pay, they better well make sure that that includes a whole range of other workers that have missed the boat as well.

What is good for the goose, is good for the gander.
