Changes to Ontario’s Employment Standards Act (ESA) coming into effect in 2015 could have a big impact on employers when it comes to areas such as ESA claims and wage recovery, working with temp agencies and record-keeping.

“They’re certainly something that employers need to pay attention to and it’s going to affect their administration of their employment relationship. It’s not just HR, it’s also the payroll folks given some of the issues related to records that are going to flow from these changes,” said Carl Cunningham, a partner at Bennett Jones in Toronto.
