Know Your Rights

Workers in Ontario and Canada have rights. The best known are the Health and Safety - related rights: the right to know about hazards, the right to participate in making the workplace safe, and the right to refuse unsafe work. Learn about your rights.


Students should be aware that we have experienced employers making unusual requests of new employees, such as cashing cheques for amounts larger than the student is owed and forwarding the remainder to another party. If a request such as this is made, please do not perform this transaction.It is also important to never send/give your banking information and other personal information to anyone unless you have initiated a request for services or goods.

Please contact the Academic Advising & Career Centre (AA&CC) in AC 213 or at 416-287-7561 if any of these requests are made by employers listing positions with our job board or if you have any questions or concerns about employer interactions.

Fraudulent Job Postings

Unfortunately, not every job posting is an opportunity. Scammers know that job offers are a powerful tool for harvesting personal information and money, so you need to know how to distinguish legitimate job postings from scam attempts. For more information please see the Canadian Anti-fraud website.
