Know Your Rights

Know Your Rights

You Have Rights!

The Labour Standards Act in Quebec has established minimum conditions of employment for ALL (minimum wage, paid vacation, sick leave, etc). These standards apply to YOU!

Domestic workers have the same right as all other Quebec workers (with minimal exceptions).

  • YOU are eligible for the health and safety benefits as a part-time or full-time worker.
  • YOU have the right to safe and healthy working conditions.
  • YOU have the right to a workplace free of harassment and discrimination.
  • YOU have the right to unionize at work without harassment or penalty.

We are all essential!

  2. Training on Temporary Migrant Workers : condition socioéconomique des (im)migrants et statut d’immigrationnormes du travail au Québecaccompagnement et communication interculturelle et questions et situations les plus fréquentes;
  3. Directory of resource organizations that offer their services to (im)migrants in all administrative regions of Quebec (except Montreal).
