In British Columbia, employers in all industries must comply with requirements to protect the health and safety of their employees. If the inspectors of WorkSafeBC investigate a workplace injury and find that safety violations caused it, the business will be fined. This happened to Nature's Oven Foods after an incident that claimed most of a baker's right arm earlier this year.
When an employee in British Columbia loses his or her job through dismissal, the worker may have several questions. These can be related to the employer's right to fire the person and whether there was just cause for the dismissal. The employee may also have questions about his or her rights to sue for wrongful termination.
