In April 2013, the Law Commission of Ontario released its final report on vulnerable workers and precarious work. The project addressed part-time, contract and temporary work—including work under the federal foreign worker programs. Among its 47 recommendations are those related to the distribution of information to new employees, increased pro-active inspections in high risk workplaces and the expediting of reprisal complaints. In this plenary, Patricia Hughes, the Commission's executive director, explains the vulnerable workers/precarious work project: its focus, its most significant recommendations, as well as its seen and potential impact.
