The Labour Relations Board works with employers, employees, and unions on matters related to employment and labour relations in unionized workplaces. Learn more about the Labour Relations Board.

Workplace disputes

If your workplace is unionized, or if you are in the process of becoming unionized, contact your union for help with a workplace dispute. If your workplace is not unionized, contact the Employment Standards Branch.

Health, safety, and bullying

If your concern involves workplace health and safety or bullying or harrassment, contact WorkSafeBC.

If your concern involves discrimination covered by the Human Rights Code, talk to your union, or review the information on arbitrary, discriminatory, and bad faith union representation, or contact the Human Rights Commission or the Human Rights Tribunal.
