Ministry of Labour | Employment Standards Vulnerable Worker Blitz

The Ministry of Labour is conducting an employment standards blitz focusing on vulnerable workers until February 14, 2020. This initiative focuses on repeat violators, temporary help agencies and workplaces that hire temporary foreign workers.

The goals of this blitz are to enhance protections for vulnerable workers by promoting awareness of, and compliance with, the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (ESA) and the Employment Protection for Foreign Nationals Act (EPFNA), and to educate employers about their obligations.
