Employers have an obligation’ to pay their full share of new ORPP

What if the government mandated a new pension plan — with premiums split between employees and employers — but companies refused to bear their fair share?

That’s the challenge facing Premier Kathleen Wynne as she rolls out the long-promised Ontario Retirement Pension Plan, a central plank in her 2014 election victory.

To her credit, Wynne has followed through with detailed plans to phase in the Ontario Retirement Pension Plan starting in 2017.

To her dismay, some companies and lobby groups are fiercely resisting the plan, calling it a “job-killing payroll tax.”
