OUR Rights

Employee Rights

As workers in Canada, we have rights. In fact, we have so many rights that it can take a while – and some help – to find out what they are. When we know our rights, we are more capable of protecting ourselves and our jobs. Knowledge is power – but only when we come together and exercise our power can we achieve the respect and dignity we deserve.



The law prohibits managers and supervisors from taking any action against employees for speaking out or acting together.
