Workplace Posting Requirements August 01 2019

 

Every Canadian jurisdiction requires employers to post information in the workplace advising employees of their rights regarding safety, employment, and more. While posting requirements differ between jurisdictions, there are five sets of laws that require employers to post certain information and documents in the workplace:

  • Employment Standards
  • Labour Relations
  • Occupational Health and Safety
  • Worker’s Compensation
  • Pay Equity

It is important to note that the location of the postings also differs by jurisdiction. For example, Manitoba and Saskatchewan are the only provinces that require employers to post safety committee information on a bulletin board while other laws state that the information must be posted in a conspicuous location where employees are likely to see it. In order to ensure that your organization is compliant with your jurisdiction’s posting requirements, please navigate to our Laws tab.
