Laws and Legislation

Ensuring your company is compliant with the Employment Standards Act (ESA), Provincial and Federal labour legislation and aware of any changes.

HR Laws and Legislation set the standards and guidelines for fair and legal employment practices in Canada, including hiring, firing, and compensation.

HR4U will keep you up-to-date on these laws, explain their potential impact on your business and ensure you are in compliance with them. This includes Federal laws such as the Canada Labour Code, the Employment Equity Act, and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) as well as Provincial and Territorial laws. HR4U also provides guidance on other laws and regulations related to compliance, such as the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) regulations and Human Rights laws.

Through continuous reviews and audits, all HR documentation found in our Client Portal, like the Employee Handbook, and all policies align with current laws and regulations.

Employers are required by law to have certain workplace policies in place at work. The policies that employers must have include the following:

  • A Workplace Health and Safety Policy
  • A Workplace Violence and Harassment Policy
  • An Accessibility Policy
  • A Pay Equity Plan (employers with 10 or more employees).

While not required, there are other policies that employers are well advised to have in place, including:

  • A Drug & Alcohol Policy (updated to address medical and non-medical cannabis)
  • A Social Media Policy
  • An Investigations Policy
  • A Human Rights Policy
  • An Accommodation Policy;
  • An Absenteeism Policy; and
  • A Privacy Policy.
