Section 30 – OLRB review of notice of contravention
Ontario Labour Relations Board review of notice of contravention - s. 30(1)
This provision establishes the right of a person against whom a notice of contravention has been issued to a review of the notice of contravention as provided for in s. 122(1) of the Employment Standards Act, 2000. Subsection 122(1) of the Employment Standards Act, 2000 provides that the written application for review must be made within thirty days of the service of the notice, unless the Ontario Labour Relations Board considers it appropriate to extend the time limit.
It is important to note that it is only the person against whom the notice has been issued, and not the foreign national to whom the contravention relates, who can apply for a review.
For a discussion of s. 122(1), see ESA Part XXIII.
Requirements - s. 30(2)
Subsections 122(2) to (7) of the Employment Standards Act, 2000 apply to a request for review of a notice of contravention. In very general terms, those provisions relate to reviews of notices of contravention at the Ontario Labour Relations Board and to the powers of the Board on such reviews.
