In line with the government’s commitment to make Ontario more open for business, the Ministry of Labour’s Employment Standards Program is providing free online access to its Employment Standards Policy & Interpretation (P&I) Manual.
By posting the P&I Manual online, the ministry is providing a simple and convenient way for employers to access information they need to understand their obligations under the Employment Standards Act (ESA), making it easier to start, run and grow a business in Ontario. The P&I Manual explains how the Ministry of Labour interprets, administers and enforces the ESA, the Employment Protection for Foreign Nationals Act, and their associated regulations.
The Manual is available at Ontario.ca/labour. Updates are made as required.
For more information on the Policy & Interpretation Manual, please call the Employment Standards Information Centre at: 416-326-7160 (GTA), 1-800-531-5551 (Toll-free) or 1-866-567-8893 (TTY).
