New Brunswick Employment Standards Update
How did the Employment Leave posting change?
The Types of Employment Leave Under the New Brunswick Employment Standards Act posting has been updated with information on new and revised categories of employment leave:
How did the Sexual Harassment posting change?
The Sexual Harassment is Prohibited Under the New Brunswick Human Rights Code posting has been rewritten to correspond to new guidance issued by the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission. The list of potentially prohibited conduct has been rewritten to indicate that sexual harassment may consist of behaviors ranging from sexually oriented jokes, patronizing name calling, unwelcome invitations, or sexual touching and physical assault.
The section on employer responsibilities has also been rewritten to reflect the employer’s responsibility to create a work environment free from all manner of sexual harassment – verbal, physical, and psychological. The employer must exercise due diligence to address incidents of sexual harassment by their employees or representatives.
How did the Employment Standards Companion Poster change?
Two sections of the Employment Standards Companion Poster have been rewritten to better reflect employer posting requirements.
Why should I post?
Posting informational notices in the workplace ensures that workers and supervisors are informed of their rights and responsibilities under the law. CPC’s exclusive line of Canadian All-On-One™ Labour Law Posters provides informational notices on provincial employment standards, occupational health and safety rules, workers’ compensation, and unemployment. Every order comes with a free sectioned companion poster to aid employers in fulfilling mandatory posting requirements.
