Time to Update your Workplace ESA Poster

The Ministry of Labour has just released version 8.0 (January 2019) of its mandatory Employment Standards Act poster. The poster is available in multiple languages on the Ministry of Labour website, but you can downloaded it English right here:

All workplaces governed by the Employment Standards Act (the “ESA“) are required to:

  1. Display this poster in a conspicuous place;
  2. provide a copy to each current employee;
  3. provide a copy to all new employees within 30 days of hiring.

Employees can be provided with a physical copy of the the poster or it can be sent to them electronically. Failure to do the above is a breach of the ESA and can have serious consequences for employers.
