EMPLOYMENT RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES PROGRAM - VOTE 1605

This program is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Employment Standards Act, 2000 and its regulations.

The Employment Standards program ensures that Ontario workers are protected by minimum standards of employment covering wages and working conditions. It encourages self-reliance with these standards through prevention efforts and secures compliance through inspections, investigations and enforcement initiatives.

NOTE: Commencing in 2003-04, Estimates are presented on the accrual basis of accounting. Information for 2002-03 and earlier years is presented on the modified cash basis, and therefore comparison between 2003-04 and earlier year figures may not be meaningful. Differences between cash and accrual relate to adjustments such as timing of transfer payments and provisions for bad debts, that would increase or decrease the 2002-03 amounts had they been presented on the accrual basis.

Adjustments for this Ministry, if any, are indicated by superscripted references above and are explained on the page following the Ministry Summary - Reconciliation of 2002-03 Estimates from Cash to Accrual.
