Workers' Rights Workshop

Know your rights: Interactive Workers' Rights Workshop

"Can I be fired for taking a sick day?", "Is it legal to be paid in cash"?, "What are my rights after I lost my job?" These questions and more will be answered in the Workers Action Centre's "Know Your Rights" workshop. Participants in this interactive workshop will learn about what rights and responsibilities they and their employer have. Furthermore, we will learn out how we can enforce their rights and push our government for more.

Join Jared Ong from Workers Action Centre and MPP Doly Begum for an interactive workshop and conversation to learn about what rights and responsibilities you and your employer have. Jared is a community organizer and caseworker with the Workers Action Centre. Working on the front-lines empowering workers to stand up for their rights at work, he sees every day how our labour law's are insufficient to protect workers rights. He believes that band-aid solutions aren't enough to address systemic inequality and therefore works to build collective-power one community at a time.

Topics covered include:

  • Wages and hours of work
  • Vacation and Public Holiday pay
  • Job-protected leaves
  • Termination, Severance and Employment Insurance
