Information related to successful prosecutions since 2014 will remain on the Government of Canada website indefinitely.

More information on successful prosecutions may also be available from the Public Prosecution Service of Canada website.

Payment orders filed in the Federal Court of Canada

A payment order is a legal document and enforcement tool that the Labour Program issues to an employer or a director of a corporation. It is issued when voluntary attempts to obtain the employer’s compliance for recovery of wages and other amounts owed to an employee have failed.

If a payment order to an employer is not complied with, an employee can request that the Labour Program file the payment order issued to the employer in the Federal Court of Canada. This means that the order has the same force and effect as if it were a judgement obtained in that Court.

Public naming of employers with payment orders that have been filed in the Federal Court occurs when 1 of the following 3 criteria are met:

The published information will remain available on the Government of Canada website for 2 years, after which the Labour Program will remove it from the site. The Labour Program will archive information which has been removed and it may be available through an Access to Information request.

An employer can request that the Labour Program remove their information from the website by paying the payment order amount and contacting the Labour Program toll free at 1-800-641-4049. The Labour Program will deal with requests for removal on a case-by-case basis.

Administrative monetary penalties

Part IV of the Canada Labour Code (Code) provides for:

The classification of violations under Part IV range from A to E-type violations.

Naming will only occur for a B to E-type violations. Naming will occur once the review and/or appeal processes are complete, if applicable.

For Occupational Health and Safety, the Labour Program bases the violation classification types, in general, on the level of risk to employees’ health and safety.

For Labour Standards, the Labour Program bases the violation classification types, in general, on the severity and impact on employees’ working conditions, which affect their lives and livelihood.

The Labour Program will remove the employer’s name and related information 2 years, after the AMP is paid and after confirmation of compliance with the provision that gave rise to the AMP.
