Employment Standards Act Issues and Complaints

Ontario’s Employment Standards Act sets out the minimum standards that all employers (and in certain circumstances employees) must follow.

The Employment Standards Act deals with, among other things, hours of work, pay periods, vacations, overtime, termination pay, parental leaves, medical leaves, and the like.

Unfortunately, the Act is not always completely clear, and often times, companies find themselves the subject of an Employment Standards Act complaint.

Failing to respond appropriately – or at all – to these complaints to mean big fines for employers. If you have any questions or concerns about these types of issues, give us a call. We can help clarify things for you.
