Is an employee entitled to a paid lunch hour? What happens if a manager stays late?  Is he or she owed overtime pay? 

Questions like those above arise in every workplace, yet many employers are not aware of their obligations under the Employment Standards Act (amongst other laws and legislation).  It is important for every business to know what their obligations are to their employees as the law demands strict compliance with basic minimum employment standards that can apply to numerous aspects of a business including, amongst other issues:

  • Remuneration;
  • Hours of work;
  • Overtime;
  • Privacy issues;
  • Public holidays and vacation;
  • Leaves of absence;
  • Notice; 
  • Termination; and 
  • Severance.
