Simon published another article on First Reference Blog entitled “5 Employment Law Predictions for 2018”.  In this article, Simon explored: (1) the increase in sexual harassment cases brought about, in part, by the “me too” movement; (2) the amendments to the Employment Standards Act, 2000 brought about by Bill 148 and in particular the equal pay for equal work provisions; (3) the continuing evolution of Termination Clauses; (4) the legalization of recreational marijuana on July 1, 2018; and (5) the increase in moral damages that have been awarded by courts, particularly in the Galea v. Wal-Mart Canada Corp., 2017 ONSC 245 decision where the court awarded $750,000 in both punitive and moral damages.  A link to this article can be found here
