Employment Rights

The Labour Standards legislation sets out the minimum employment rules in Nova Scotia that employers and employees have to follow.  It also sets out rules specific to the recruitment of workers and the hiring of foreign workers. Employees, employers and recruiters have rights and responsibilities under these rules. A person who believes the rules have been broken can file a complaint with the Labour Standards Division.
