Overtime Rules in Ontario

Overtime rules under the Ontario Employment Standards Act can give rise to unexpected liability for employers. The Act requires employers to pay at least time and a half for all hours worked by an employee in excess of 44 hours per week. The entitlement can be enforced through a complaint to the Employment Standards Branch of the Ministry of Labour. Alternatively, an employee can bring a Class Action lawsuit on behalf of all employees who may be owed overtime pay. Two recent decisions in Ontario have certified Class Actions for such claims.
