Ask the ExpertEmployment Standards for Professionals
hri_Admin Staff asked 3 years ago

Hello,

Could you please point me to some information regarding employment standards for professionals? On the Manitoba Employment Standards website I found this

“Other employees, such as some agricultural workers, construction workers, professionals, part-time domestic workers, landscape workers and, election workers are entitled to some employment standards but not all.”

I cannot find the information though on which professionals are entitled to what.
Thanks

The Manitoba Employment Standards Regulations, https://www.canlii.org/en/mb/laws/regu/man-reg-6-2007/latest/man-reg-6-2007.pdf  list the ESC exemptions. Section 5 deals with professionals. It says:
Professions 5
Except for Divisions 5 (annual vacations and vacation allowances), 9 (unpaid leaves) and 13 (equal wages) and subdivisions 1 and 3 of
Division 10 (termination of employment), Part 2 does not apply to an employee who
(a) is qualified to practise and is practising or employed in a profession that is governed underan Act of the Legislature that applies solely to the profession; or
(b) is registered or enrolled and employed as astudent-in-training in respect of such a profession
Check the other parts of the Regs. for ESC application to other occupations and industries. Hope that helps. Glenn
