As part of our recent wave of booklet updates, we've updated our cornerstone title on legal rights in the workplace, Essentials of Work & the Law (formerly Working in BC). This booklet explains the rights of workers to get paid, to vacation and leaves from work, to a safe workplace, and to be free of discrimination. It covers the steps to take if you have a problem at work, and your rights if you're fired or leave your job.
This update features:
Updated content. The booklet is now current to March 2019.
More practical guidance. More tips, more user stories, and more step-by-step guidance to help you (for example) prepare for getting a job or deal with a problem at work.
Our fresh new look. This update features our new look for People's Law School booklets, with a more readable font and layout.
We've also changed the name of the booklet to Essentials of Work & the Law. The new title emphasizes the focus on your legal rights as a worker, and how employment laws apply to you in your workplace.
