Hiring employees

Know your obligations and opportunities when it comes to hiring employees — from recruitment to payroll to tax returns — and familiarize yourself with current labour market conditions.

When you hire someone to work for you, there are certain government regulations you must follow, from recruitment to payroll to tax returns. There are also certain things you can do that will help you find and hire the best candidates for the jobs you are offering.

Before you begin hiring, you may want to familiarize yourself with the current labour market conditions, and find out what services are available in your area to help you with your search.

It's important to have a system for identifying the requirements of the positions you want to fill, as well as policies for recruitment and selection that are inclusive and fair, with an aim to hiring the most qualified people, and achieving equality in your workplace.
