If you are a federally regulated employer or if you work for a federally regulated employer such as a bank, telecommunications company or interprovincial transportation company, the Canada Labour Code is the labour law that applies to you.
Generally, labour law covers:
A forward regulatory plan is a public list or description of anticipated regulatory changes or actions that a department intends to bring forward or undertake in a specified time frame. It is intended to give consumers, business, other stakeholders and trading partners greater opportunity to inform the development of regulations and to plan for the future. It should be noted that this forward regulatory plan will be adjusted and updated over time as the Labour Program's operating environment also changes over time.
This plan provides information on planned and potential regulatory initiatives that the Labour Program expects to bring forward over the next two years. It also identifies public consultation opportunities and a departmental contact point for each regulatory initiative.
The Labour Program of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada also administers or is governed by, in whole or in part, other Acts and Regulations in fulfilling its mandate.
