Guidelines for Classifying Employees as a Supervisor

The Act defines a supervisor as a person who has charge of a workplace or authority over a worker.

Examples of Charge and Authority:

  • Ability to: hire, fire, exercise discipline, give awards or bonuses, approve vacation time, promote or demote, place tenders
  • Controlling: rate of pay, what equipment can be rented
  • Deciding: hours of work, make-up of work crew, buying equipment
  • Meeting with workers to: go over job details, review safety issue

Please note that faculty employees or support staff who oversee students in a higher risk setting (e.g. industrial, chemical, or biological labs) can register for this training. We want to extend our duty of care to our students and ensure that employees have thorough and appropriate training.
