Province Reviewing Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act
Ontario is seeking public input to help make workplaces fairer for workers in industries that currently have exemptions, special rules or exclusions.
People across the province can have their say on important decisions related to employment standards such as wages, hours of work and public holidays. The first phase of consultations focuses on eight occupations currently exempt from minimum employment standards.
Ontario is also reviewing rights under the Labour Relations Act for domestic workers.
This public consultation forms part of the Ministry of Labour's broader review of Employment Standards Act (ESA) special rules and exemptions, as well as Labour Relations Act (LRA) exclusions. It is part of Ontario's plan for Fair Workplaces and Better Jobs.
