New Employment Standards Poster and Updated Guide

The Ministry of Labour recently published a revised What You Need to Know poster.  The Employment Standards Act, 2000 requires that:

  • Every employer post and keep posted in at least one conspicuous place in every workplace of the employer where it is likely to come to the attention of employees in that workplace a copy of the most recent poster published by the Minister under this section. 
  • If the majority language of a workplace of an employer is a language other than English, the employer shall make enquiries as to whether the Minister has prepared a translation of the poster into that language, and if the Minister has done so, the employer shall post and keep posted a copy of the translation next to the copy of the poster.
  • Every employer shall provide each of his or her employees with a copy of the most recent poster published by the Minister under this section.
  • Every employer shall provide an employee with a copy of the poster within 30 days of the day the employee becomes an employee of the employer.

Also of note is the Ministry’s updated (and very useful) Guide to the Employment Standards Act.  I highly recommend bookmarking the Guide.
