Find out if you're covered by the Employment Standards Act

The Employment Standards Act (ESA) has minimum standards that employers must follow. 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).
