ESA is a provincial statute. In other words, it covers almost every employee and employer at the Ontario level.
Federal employers such as banks, radio, television, inter-provincial railways, and airlines and their employees are not covered by the ESA. Some other individuals including police officers and students performing work as a part of program completion are also excluded from the protection of ESA.
ESA governs nearly every detail within employment. Some of the most common issues are as listed below:
- Salaries, Wages, and Gratuities,
- Hours of Work, Breaks, and Overtime,
- Termination of Employment and Layoffs,
- Holidays and Vacations,
- Severance Pay
Some of the issues will require your immediate attention or otherwise cause lasting negative outcomes to your employment. Conduct us for a free consultation and find out what you need to protect your rights.
