Electronic Monitoring of Employees Policy-
What Employers Need to Know
July 15, 2022
Effective October 11, 2022, many employers in Ontario are required to have a written policy on the electronic monitoring of employees. On July 13, 2022, the Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development released its chapter material on this new requirement. This briefing note addresses frequently asked questions.

When must an employer have a policy in place?
Every provincially regulated employer in Ontario with 25 or more employees as of January 1, 2022, is required to have an electronic monitoring of employees policy in place by October 11, 2022. In each subsequent year, an employer with 25 or more employees as of January 1 is required to have the policy in place as of March 1 of that year.
