The Employment Standards Tribunal is an administrative tribunal established under the Employment Standards Act. The Tribunal conducts appeals of Determinations issued by the Director of Employment Standards and may also reconsider any order or decision it makes.
If you have been served with a Determination issued by the Director of Employment Standards you may appeal the Determination with the Tribunal.
However, if you have questions about minimum standards of wages and working conditions in most workplaces or if you would like to file a complaint against an employer, please visit the Employment Standards Branch’s website at www.gov.bc.ca/EmploymentStandards. The Employment Standards Branch Information Line (250-612-4100 or toll free in B.C., 1-800-663-3316) can give you a more detailed answer if the information you seek is not on their website.
