EMPLOYMENT RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES PROGRAM - VOTE 1605

The Employment Rights and Responsibilities Program (ERRP) is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Employment Standards Act, 2000 and its regulations.

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