Ontario Requiring Employers to Disclose Electronic Monitoring

Today, employers have more means than ever before to monitor where their workers are and what they are doing.

Whether you are a delivery person followed by GPS, a construction worker using a company phone or an office worker logging in from home, you deserve to know if and how you and being tracked.

For Ontario to continue to lead the future of work, we must break new ground on protecting the privacy of workers while on the job.

That’s why the government plans to introduce new legislation later this month that, if passed, would require employers with 25 or more workers to establish policies on how they are electronically monitoring their workers.

If passed, Ontario would become the first province to require employers to develop and share these policies.

This proposal is part of new legislation the government intends to introduce this winter.

It builds on the government’s bold actions in its first Working for Workers . We are continuing to ensure Ontario is the best place to live, work and raise a family.
