Industry Exemptions

Industry Exemptions : NS Labour and Advanced Education, Employment Rights

Some types of work are significantly different from other work, and in some of these cases, the usual rules of the Code may not be appropriate. For example, the Code recognizes that sometimes logging and forestry workers may agree to be paid by the cord instead of at least minimum wage so the Minimum Wage Order Logging and Forestry Operations allows for this type of payment.

Other types of work may require different rules that benefit both employees and employers. See the list below for the special rules that apply for some types of work.



If you have any questions, please contact Labour Standards.
