Apply your conflict resolution skills to this dynamic opportunity

The Employment Standards Branch is responsible for ensuring awareness of and compliance with all requirements of the Employment Standards Act (the Act) and Regulation and for providing front-line services to employers and employees in carrying out these legislative provisions. This involves interpreting, administering and enforcing the Act and Regulation to determine whether employees are owed wages by their employers.

Employment Standards Officers (ESOs) serve as officers in the Employment Standards Branch. As delegates of the Director of Employment Standards, ESOs educate parties about the requirements of the legislation, and mediate or investigate complaints made by employees against their employers regarding alleged contraventions of the Act. ESOs also initiate investigations or conduct audits on behalf of the Director of Employment Standards. ESOs assist parties to voluntarily resolve complaints, or write decisions consistent with legal requirements within the framework of administrative fairness and natural justice. ESOs are skilled communicators who are responsible for improving awareness and knowledge of employment standards in the Province.

If you are a motivated professional with the communication skills required to effectively promote knowledge of critical employment standards as well as mediate and investigate complaints, consider this challenging and rewarding career opportunity.
