To help ensure that employers understand their obligations and that employees know their rights, the Minister of Labour has prepared and published a new Employment Standards Poster entitled “Employment Standards in Ontario”. This poster describes important rights and requirements under the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (ESA) and must be posted in the workplace where it is likely that employees will see it.
