Is there a blanket OverTime law on Ontario or any provision that cover OT?

My spouse - a full-time salaried- is working OT as work is associated with an essential service. It's not medical/provincial/govt job related.
But employed by fairly large private company, where business is going well, very well infact and they are already hiring extra temp workers.

Also the overtime is at erratic timings - being on-call to work on weekends, after hours. So far only getting regular salary.
We are glad that we have work, but fortunately this has been great time for multi-million $ company as well , they are breaking all sales metrics. Wondering if there is an OT law in Ontario, that can be discussed with the HR ? or is it all based on company policies.

thanks in advance.

Depends on the kind of work. Certain types of professional or technology type jobs don't have to be paid extra overtime monies, just regular salary. The government did this to make our technology sector more competitive. I discovered this the hard way.
