Lay-off Complaints

If you are planning to file a lay-off complaint

You should review the PSLREB's Procedural Guide for staffing complaints. You will find detailed information about timelines, what documents are required at the time of filing, an overview of the complaint process, etc.

A special Information Bulletin for individuals filing lay-off complaints has been prepared. It provides critical information on what should and should not be included when filing your complaint.

The PSLREB's Registry Services cannot give you legal or other advice on the merits of your case. To understand the role of the Registry, please see Registry Services.

If you have been informed you are an other party to a lay-off complaint

You may want to learn about what it means to be an other party to a complaint. You can find information about other parties in the Public Service Staffing Complaints Regulations and the PSLREB's Procedural Guide for staffing complaints.

As well, there is an Information Bulletin - What it Means to be Identified as Other Parties in a Lay-off Complaint available if you want a brief explanation of what it means to be an other party to a complaint. The Information Bulletin - Waiver for "other party" also explains what you need to do if you wish to withdraw from a complaint process.

If you need information about mediation and settlement conferences

There is information available on mediation and settlement conferences to help you understand what these alternate dispute resolution processes are at the PSLREB.
