Cranberry Workers

Various laws outline employment conditions within an agricultural business or other entreprise. Here, we mention two main laws to which employers must conform. However, this section in no means pretends to cover the entire subject of dealing with the labour force.

Labour Standards

As an employer in Quebec, you are subject to the Quebec Labour Standards law which encompasses work conditions within your cranberry operation. This law prescribes the duration of the work, minimum wage, annual vacation and holidays, break times and employee absence.
