Question & AnswerWhat can my employer deduct from my pay?
1. Find out if Ontario’s laws about pay apply to you
Ontario’s (ESA) has rules about pay, including what your employer can deduct.
But not all jobs are covered by the ESA. And, in some cases, only parts of the ESA apply.
Use the Ministry of Labour’s online tool called Industries and Jobs with Exemptions or Special Rules to find out if your job is covered by the ESA and which parts of the ESA apply.
You can also call the Ministry’s Employment Standards Information Centre at 1-800-531-5551, 416-326-7160, or 1-866-567-8893 (TTY).
