As discussed in our April 30, 2021 briefing note, the Ontario Government amended the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (“ESA”) to entitle an employee to up to three days of paid IDEL between April 19, 2021 and September 25, 2021. That latter date was then extended to December 31, 2021 and now to July 31, 2022. All other components of the paid IDEL program remain unchanged.
