Employment Standards Act

If you work in New Brunswick, you have rights that are protected by law. The Employment Standards Act establishes minimum employment standards that most employers and employees must follow. The act is designed to ensure that employees receive fair and reasonable treatment from their employer and covers issues such as the minimum wage, overtime, hours of work, minimum reporting wage, statutory holidays, annual leave, notices of dismissal, layoff and termination of employment, protection wages, foreign workers and sick leave. If an employee feels their employment rights have been violated, they can bring their complaints to the attention of the Labor and Employment Commission, which is responsible for investigating and settling matters relating to work and employment.
