Why Buy Canadian Labour Law Posters?

Unlike the United States, Canada generally does not require employers to display general informational notices on labour laws. Instead, employers must post the full text of specified provincial laws and regulations, as well as employer-specific information such as the names of workplace safety representatives and internal policies regarding topics such as workplace violence and harassment. However, many employers prefer to display additional descriptive notices so that employees are fully informed of their rights and responsibilities under the law without having to wade through pages of legal text.

CPC has created our unique line of Canadian All-On-OneTM Labour Law Posters. Each poster contains informational notices on various aspects of provincial employment law, such as requirements surrounding payment of wages, the types of leave employees are entitled to, prohibited forms of discrimination, and occupational safety and health. Every Canadian All-On-OneTM Labour Law Poster comes with a sectioned companion poster to allow employers to post the copies of laws, regulations, and internal policies which are required by provincial law.
