Your rights as a worker

You have rights as a worker even if:

  • you are not a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident, or a holder of a work permit
  • you just started the job
  • you work in your home or someone else’s home
  • you live in someone else’s home and you work for them
  • you must work in different places at different times to do the job
  • your job is full-time, part-time, or temporary

Even if you signed a contract saying you are an “independent contractor” you still might have rights as a worker.
