Please Read First - Does Your Concern Fall Under the OLRB's Jurisdiction?
The Ontario Labour Relations Board receives many different kinds of applications, under a variety of Ontario laws. However, not all applications are properly before the Board. Some belong to other tribunals; others should be heard by the civil courts, or by private arbitration, and still others need to be initiated within other areas of the Ministry of Labour.
If you have a complaint about discrimination in your workplace, you should contact the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario at 416-326-1312 or www.hrto.ca .
If you have a complaint about your pay, hours of work, overtime, vacation or holiday entitlements, termination or severance pay, and you are not represented by a trade union, you should call the Ministry of Labour Employment Standards Call Centre at 1-800-531-5551. You can also get information on these topics from the Ministry's website: www.labour.gov.on.ca
When you call the LRS, it will provide you with the name of a lawyer who will provide a free consultation of up to 30 minutes to help you determine your rights and options. You can access the service by calling: 1-800-268-8326 or 416-947-3330 (within the GTA)
For more information go to the Law Society of Upper Canada’s website at www.lsuc.on.ca and follow the tabs to “For the Public” and “Lawyer Referral Service”.
If you are looking for information relating to Collective Bargaining (e.g. current trends and highlights, the existence of collective agreements, collective agreement expirations etc. you should call 416-326-1260 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
