Freedom from Exploitation in the Workplace
Canada implemented a recommendation in the last review to ratify ILO Convention 138 which addresses age of employment. Provinces lead in implementation, including informing young people about their rights in the workplace, providing a complaint process, and monitoring safety and fair treatment in the workplace.
The CCRC produced and distributed a Fact Sheet to encourage implementation in ways that would protect the rights of young people in the workplace. A background research paper provides information about related provisions in provincial labour legislation. The CCRC hopes the 5th/6th report will provide more information about effective implementation to achieve the goal of realizing the rights of young people in the workplace.
