Employment Standards Across Canada: Basic Requirements

Nigerians in Canada

If you are planning to move to Canada, familiarizing yourself with employment standards set by your province is an important step to take. The employment standards set out the rights and responsibilities of employees and employers in most workplaces. As a newcomer even if you previously worked for multinational back in Nigeria, working in the same company and in the same job role in Canada is a different ball game entirely. This is because being in a supervisory or managerial role requires you to be aware of the workplace culture in Canada as well as its employment standards. For example, preventing an employee from taking a rest break on a regular work day or denying them their entitled vacation time off as required by law could become a huge issue than you previously anticipated. As simple and un-harmful as these actions sound, they would be seen as denying an employee their basic rights in Canada and could give you and your company bad publicity. Listed below is the link for your provincial employment standards to get you started.
