Know Your Rights

The Employer derives the authority to conduct an investigation from a wide variety of sources. Legislation, Commissioner's Directives, Policies and Guidelines, collective agreements, jurisprudence, legal advice and the principles of natural justice must all be examined to determine the rights of members faced with actions taken by the Employer following an unfavourable event or incident.

The USGE has published a document called "Know Your Rights". Copies may be requested from the National Office, or they can be downloaded here:
