One of the most difficult issues faced by employers regarding the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (“ESA”) is dealing with widespread non-compliance. While it’s often easy to fix the problem on a go-forward basis, how do you address the past?

In this session, we will:

  • Provide a brief update on recent ESA amendments
  • Review recent Ministry of Labour trends in prosecutions and fines
  • Examine the limitation periods under the ESA and common law related to wage and hour claims
  • Discuss ethical issues related to negotiating resolutions of ESA claims with employees
