Employment Standards Act

Code: SOCS1160

Course description

For most employees who work in non-unionized settings legal protections are largely found in the provincial Employment Standards Act. This law sets minimum protections regarding wages, overtime pay / hours and vacation time amongst others. The enforcement of this law is the responsibility of the Ministry of Labour. In this module, we will review the coverage of the Act, the areas of protection and how to file a claim with the Ministry as a lay advocate.
