Enforcement

Even though more than one in three employers violates our basic minimum labour standards, the government does little to protect workers. 98% of employers found in violation of the law faced no fine or prosecution. With no real risk of being caught breaking the law and no real cost to violating employment standards, it is no surprise that violations are so widespread.

The government must ensure all employers follow the law in all workplaces.
