If you work or worked at Blyth Academy teaching courses there, you might benefit from the Class Action.  We encourage you to fill out the form found below so that we can keep you informed about the case.

This class action is against Blyth Academy, a private school operating many campuses in Ontario. The claim alleges that current and former employees teaching Blyth students have been misclassified as "independent contractors" and should have been classified by Blyth Academy as "employees". The class action alleges that this misclassification meant that these employees and those teachers Blyth Academy in fact classified as employees were denied certain statutory minimum protections found in Ontario's Employment Standards Act, 2000, protections like minimum wages, overtime pay, vacation pay, and holiday pay. The class action seeks compensation for these employees.

The class of people covered by the class action is generally staff who worked or are still working at Blyth Academy and whose job it was to teach students courses.


The claim against Blyth Academy is contained in a document called the "Amended Statement of Claim", a copy of which can be viewed HERE.

A copy of Blyth Academy's Statement of Defence can be found HERE.

The parties recently reached a settlement agreement settling the entire class action.  Details about the settlement will be posted here when details are approved by court order.  The settlement agreement can only be implemented if the court approves the settlement agreement
