Bad Employers for November, December 2011

Sadly, there’s a new batch of employers on the MOL’s shame list, this time for the months of November and December 2011.  These are employers who violated the ESA and yet refused to pay up, requiring prosecutors to take them to court.  This is not a list of all employers who violated the ESA during this period.  There are many more of those.

Here is the archived list of past months’ Bad Employers. For employers that do not want to find themselves on this list, learn the laws and comply with that.  If you don’t understand the rules, talk to an employment lawyer, or spend some time reading the very helpful materials available on the Ministry of Labour’s website. These materials will also help inform employees of their legal rights.

Here are the Bad Employers for November and December 2011 from the Ministry of Labour’s Sunshine list. Do you do business with any of these irresponsible employers?
