As a temporary worker, what can I do if my employer is treating me unfairly?
As a temporary worker, your employment contract should clearly define your:
- mandatory employer-paid benefits,
- job duties,
- hours of work,
- accommodation arrangements (when applicable),
- holiday and sick leave entitlements, and
- termination and resignation terms.
If you think your employer is treating you unfairly, you can call or write to the nearest provincial or territorial labour standards office for help. Your employer is not allowed to punish you for complaining to a labour standards office.
