Workplace Policies That All Businesses Need

A very short list of the policies that you MUST have (and those that you SHOULD have) in Ontario.

Ontario employers are required by law to have certain workplace policies in place at work. The policies that employers must have include the following:

  1. Workplace Health and Safety Policy;
  2. Workplace Violence and Harassment Policy;
  3. an Accessibility Policy; and
  4. Pay Equity Plan (employers with 10 or more employees).

Failure to have these policies in place is a violation of Ontario law and may result in the imposition of statutory fines and penalties.
