NO MANDATORY EMPLOYER-PAID SICK DAYS!
I CAN’T AFFORD TO COVER INCREASED LABOUR COSTS!
80% of Ontario’s small businesses can’t afford to take on new costs to pay for a mandatory employer-paid sick days program.

My business can’t find the employees we need. Payroll costs are already skyrocketing and the price of everything continues to rise!
The cost of doing business is higher than it’s ever been. My pandemic recovery is still uncertain. Now is not the time to dump new costs on small businesses!
Don’t force my business to pay even more. I can’t afford it!
To keep labour costs affordable and help Ontario stay open for business, I urge you: Do not introduce any mandatory employer-paid sick days!
