Labour Law

Labour Law

Labour law defines your rights and obligations as workers, union members and employers in the workplace. Generally, labour law covers:

* Industrial relations – certification of unions, labour-management relations, collective bargaining and unfair labour practices
* Workplace health and safety
* Employment standards, including general holidays, annual vacations, working hours, unjust dismissals, minimum wage, layoff procedures and severance pay

If you are a federally regulated employer or if you work for a federally regulated employer such as a bank, telecommunications company or interprovincial transportation company, the Canada Labour Code is the labour law that applies to you. Visit these pages to find out more.
