Employers with employees in Ontario often ask about legislative requirements under various employment statutes, including mandatory policies, training and postings under the Employment Standards Act, 2000, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act, 1997, the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005, the Pay Equity Act, and the Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2017. To make this information conveniently available, the Littler Toronto office assembled these requirements in a single publication. This year, the publication also includes a link to Ontario government guidelines regarding COVID-19 and workplace health and safety and sector-specific resources (safety guidelines, tips, and posters) to help employers protect workers, customers and the general public from COVID-19 in Ontario.
