The Employment Standard Act 2000 (ESA 2000) sets out the minimum standards that a provincially governed Employer must comply with. The obligations under the ESA 2000 are different than under the Canada Labour Code (which is the statute that governs federally governed employers). Under the ESA 2000 employers must insure to abide by the proper standards, such as those pertaining to overtime pay, statutory holidays and leave obligations (maternity leave, parental leave, sick leave, emergency leave).
