Bune Law Toronto Employment LawyerEmployment Standards

In Ontario, the Employment Standards Act, 2000 creates basic rights that all employees have, including:

  • overtime pay
  • hours of work and eating periods
  • public holidays
  • paid vacation
  • pregnancy and parental leave
  • personal emergency leave
  • termination and severance of employment 

It is illegal for employers to provide you with less than these minimum standards.  Employers who fail to comply with these requirements face serious consequences, including Provincial Offences charges by the Ministry of Labour.
