Closing the Gap’s research team is extending their analysis of employment standards enforcement into the federal jurisdiction and Emerson Iudiciani had the exciting opportunity work with the early data.
Iudiciani, a York University student in his final year of undergrad studies in the Department of Politics, was awarded a Dean’s Award for Research Excellence (DARE). DARE gives opportunities for undergraduate students to engage in research supervised by York faculty members. He spent this past summer helping clean administrative data from the Government of Canada’s Labour Program and at the award celebration on Oct. 2 presented early findings on employment standards enforcement under Part III of the Canada Labour Code.
Funded by a John R. Evans Leader’s Award from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), and in partnership with the Labour Program, this project will ultimately create database on labour standards compliance to improve our understanding of labour standards in the federal jurisdiction to guide future policy changes.
