A written employment contract is not obligatory for employment with an employer in Ontario. In short, it is not mandated by legislation. However, a formal written agreement can effectively outline the terms of the employer-employee relationship.

Considering the above, provincially regulated employees are still protected under the Ontario Employment Standards Act and Ontario’s Human Rights Code.

In summary, the working arrangement can be established through an implied employment contract or verbal agreement. However, these types of agreements can be more challenging to substantiate and uphold. If you have concerns in relation to your employment agreement, we recommend speaking with an experienced employment lawyer. Contact Sultan Lawyers online or by telephone at 416-214-5111 today.
