Workers rights

Do you have questions about your workplace rights or a specific situation? Contact the following services for support: 

Protected rights that you have as an employee:

  • Your employer must pay you for at least 3 hours of work. Even if you are sent home early, you are owed 3 hours.
  • You have the right to (and should) refuse any work that is unsafe.
  • Your employer can’t take money from your pay cheque for broken items or shortages at the cash register.
  • You have the right to be free from discrimination at work.
  • You cannot be fired for requesting something that you are entitled to or for making a complaint under the Employment Standards Code, Occupational Health and Safety Act or Alberta Human Rights Act.

Workplace Discrimination:

Canadian law protects you from physical or mental injury and discrimination at work. The laws also protect you from being fired or punished for reporting an employer.

Unions:

If you work for an employer where there is a union, there may be other benefits you are entitled to through your union agreement. Ask a colleague, your employer or the human resources department if you are a unionized employee and for a copy of your agreement.
