Personal emergency leave for auto workers

personal emergency leave


The Fair Workplaces Better Jobs Act allows 10 days of personal emergency leave, including two paid days for illness, injury, bereavement or other emergencies. However, an exemption that came into effect on January 1, 2018, means auto workers are entitled to only seven days for personal or family illness or emergencies and three days for each eligible bereavement, none of them paid.

Ontario auto workers are unfairly singled out by an Employment Standards Act exemption that provides a lesser standard of personal emergency leave than that given to other workers.  Tell the Ontario government to fix this now!
