Employment Standards Enforcement: a Scan of Employment Standards Complaints and Workplace Inspections and their Resolutions under the Employment Standards Act

The standard of decency

I have an internal debate with myself over whether most of the new or amended legal obligations answer a real need of employers and employees, or are borne of a need of legislators to justify their existence, or appear to addressing crises which really aren’t. And just as soon as I have convinced myself that additional laws and regulations are, for the most part, too onerous to justify their limited value, I read numerous news reports on the prevalency of wage theft in Ontario and workplace employment standards violations.
