BC Employment Standards
The standard of living in B.C. ranks among the best in the world. In part, this is thanks to human and employment rights guaranteed by the province’s workplace laws and regulations.
There are numerous rights that exist for workplace matters specifically. These rights are protected under B.C. law, regulations and codes of conduct, ranging from standards that ensure safe working conditions and minimum wages, to rules and regulations that address how job complaints and terminations must be handled. Many Canadian laws also apply to workplace rights in B.C.
The Employment Standards Branch uses a variety of forms for things such as licensing applications for farm labour, employment agencies, and talent agencies, employing domestic workers, employing young people, and for dispute resolution.
