How to Prepare for a Diverse Workforce
In Canada, federal and provincial laws protect employers and workers. Laws set minimum wage levels, health and safety standards and hours of work. Human rights laws protect employees from unfair treatment based on their sex, age, race, religion or disability.
Familiarize yourself with these laws: they apply to internationally trained workers. You should also be aware of any provincial laws that provide additional protection for foreign workers.
Following these laws can help ensure that talented staff remain dedicated and loyal to your organization.
