In a decision released last week, the Court of Appeal for Ontario held an employer could not rely on a valid and enforceable “without cause” provision in an employment agreement where the agreement included a “for-cause” provision that violated Ontario’s Employment Standards Act, 2000 (“ESA”).
On May 29, 2020, the Government of Ontario introduced a regulation under the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (“ESA”) that provides welcome relief to any employer that temporarily laid off a non-union employee or reduced non-union employee wages and/or hours due to COVID-19.
