On May 1, 2015, a new version of the Ministry of Labour’s Employment Standards Poster will be published (version 6.0).  This replaces version 5.0.

The poster describes important rights and requirements under the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (ESA) and must be posted in the workplace where it is likely that employees will see it.  If the majority language in the workplace is something other than English and the ministry has published a version in that language, the employer must post a translated version next to the English version.

An employer who is required to post the poster and who fails to post version 6.0 on or after May 1, 2015 would be in violation of the ESA.

How can I get copies of the new poster?

As of May 1, 2015, version 6.0 will be available in English and French at Ontario.ca/ESAposter and for the cost of shipping and handling from ServiceOntario Publications, 1-800-668-9938.

Multilingual versions will be available at Ontario.ca/employmentrights.
