Understand employment regulations in Québec

Are you a new business owner?
If so, your first step is to figure out whether your business is federally or provincially regulated. Almost 90% of businesses are regulated provincially, but if your business falls under the federal jurisdiction you should refer to the Canadian Labour Code.

Do these questions sound familiar? We can help!

  • What is the minimum wage?
  • How do I pay my staff for paid statutory holidays?
  • How do I calculate my employee overtime?
  • Who is entitled to annual leave?
  • What are the leaves of absence allowed for family-related events?
  • Am I required to provide a coffee break?
  • Do I have to pay for my employee's uniform?
  • What steps must I take to terminate an employee?
