Your Rights at Work 101 – Holiday Edition

December 13, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

The holiday season is a busy time for retail shops and restaurants. Do you have questions about scheduling, rest period, over time and stat pay? Join the Retail Action Network for our monthly free workshop that will leave you with practical information about your workplace rights during the holiday season.

Legal advocates from the Employment Standards Legal Advocacy Project and the Vancouver Island Human RIghts Coaltion will be there to answer your questions and share what they do to support workers.

The workshop is FREE and will run from 5:30-7:00 at the Victoria Event Centre (1415 Broad Street). Email solidarity@workersolidarity.ca or text 250 418 5082 to save your spot. Free snacks provided.


If you haven’t heard of the Retail Action Network, we are a group of workers and labour activists that fight for workplace justice, increased wages, and improved working conditions in retail, food service and hospitality.


Bus tickets are available by request.

The Victoria Event Centre will be completing a new and detailed accessibility audit at the beginning of December, and is working to improve the accessibility (and accessibility information) of the venue. One of the washrooms has recently been modified to accommodate wheelchairs. The on-site elevator is currently undergoing a recertification process, and until that process is complete we cannot consider the venue to be wheelchair accessible. The VEC will post updates as new information is available.


This event is taking place within Lkwungen Territory. In respect to this, we strive to maintain and sustain a decolonization framework while we challenge the institutions of capitalism.
