Alison Griggs, Provincial Specialist in Employment Practices
You might be wondering what the new workplace legislation means for you. Alison helps everyone understand.
We don’t know what the workplaces of the future will look like, but Alison Griggs, a Provincial Specialist in Employment Practices for the Ministry of Labour, is working to ensure they will be fair.
When legislation comes from the halls of Queen’s Park, it consists of ‘legalese’. Alison works on the operational policy to make sure the laws can be put into action. When bills are developed and amendments are made, Alison and her colleagues research how the policy can actually be implemented.
With the passing of Bill 148, the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, many employers and employees will be looking into their rights and responsibilities. Employment standards officers will need to know how to enforce the laws fairly. Alison’s plain-language communication resources bring clarity to complicated legislation to promote safer, more equitable workplaces.
