The Ontario Ministry of Labour recently released details concerning its enforcement plans for the remainder of 2018 and 2019, which focus on ensuring that employers are complying with the Employment Standards Act, 2000 and the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

In this article, we discuss the scope of those plans, including the sectors likely to be targeted with inspection blitzes.
