Law Times News quotes Toronto lawyer, Bonny Mak, in an article on employee misclassification.
“There is no magic bullet,” says Bonny Mak, a partner at Fasken LLP. “Courts and adjudicators will really look at how the relationship is on the ground.”
Mak advises employers about how to classify workers. Sometimes, employers hire independent contractors to provide a service they need but don’t intend to or can’t provide on their own, she says.
