Proposed Amendment to O.Reg 289/01 (Enforcement) of the Employment Standards Act, 2000
Ontario Regulation 289/01
Regulation - LGIC
Bill or Act:
Employment Standards Act, 2000
Summary of Decision:
Amended regulation was filed on June 24, 2011
April 15, 2011
Summary of Proposal:
This proposal is to amend Ontario Regulation 289/01 (Enforcement) under the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (ESA) in order to designate Quebec as a "reciprocating state" for the purposes of employment standards.
Adding Quebec as a "reciprocating state" would allow for employment standards orders issued against an employer in Quebec who now resides or operates in Ontario to be enforced by Ontario's Director of Employment Standards (ES). Similarly, as a reciprocating state, Quebec would be able to enforce Ontario's employment standards orders.
