Employment Standards

Employment Standards legislation defines the minimum requirements in dealing with employees in Ontario.  Other provinces and territories have their own legislation which is similar, but not identical to Ontario’s. 

Standards include, for example:

  •          hours of work and overtime pay
  •          statutory holidays and holiday pay
  •          vacations and vacation pay
  •          minimum wages
  •          legislated leaves of absence
  •          notice and severance pay when terminating without cause
