In Ontario, and under the ESA, an employee with less than five (5) years of service with the same employer is entitled to two (2) weeks of paid vacation per year. Once an employee reaches five (5) years or more of service with the same employer, the employee becomes entitled to three (3) weeks of paid vacation.

Please note that these are ESA minimums only, and as such, employers and employees are free to negotiate an employee’s vacation entitlements to the extent that the vacation arrangement complies with the minimum vacation entitlements as set out under the ESA, or other applicable employment legislation in the relevant jurisdiction.

If your employer has not provided you with entitlements consistent with at least the minimum employment standards, or alternatively, if your employer is requesting that you contract out of/agree to a vacation entitlement that is less than what is prescribed under the ESA, please contact Toronto employment lawyers, Sultan Lawyers, at (416) 214-5111 or via email to mlahert@sultanlawyers.com.
