OHIP Rulings at Judicial Review

LANCASTER HOUSE Recent Headlines on OHIP Rulings
In a set of five decisions released on December 8, the Ontario Court of Appeal dismissed challenges to rulings by six arbitrators on the issue of who must pay the Ontario Health Premium, which was imposed as a tax in 2004 by the Liberal government of Premier Dalton McGuinty, despite campaign promises not to raise taxes. In the court's view, although four of the rulings favoured the unions' interpretations and two the employer's position, all the rulings were based on interpretations of collective agreement language and none was "patently unreasonable."
