Our regular readers will recall our previous posts (here and here) on upcoming changes to the Employment Standards Act.  On February 20, 2015, some of these changes will be coming into effect:

  • There will no longer be a limit on the amount that can be ordered for unpaid wages due to an employee.
  • Employees will have two years, rather than six months, to claim unpaid wages under the Act.
  • Employees may recover vacation pay due over the past twelve, rather than six, months.
