Employment Standards & Workplace Safety

Whether you’re an employee or an employer, it’s important to understand employment standards and to know where to go if you need help or advice.

Employment Standards

The law in B.C. sets standards for payment, compensation and working conditions in most workplaces. The standards promote open communication, fair treatment and life-work balance for employees.
