Basic rules

  • All unsatisfied judgments from Employment Standards are made public.
  • If any enforcement action requiring payment has been issued as a result of a complaint and the employer fails to comply, the action is filed with the Court.
  • Once filed with the Court, the action is enforceable as a Court judgment.
  • A judgment may be collected through means other than direct payment from an employer. See Judgment collection for more information.
