Website in transition!

On November 1, 2014, the Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board (PSLREB) was created. The PSLREB was created when the Public Service Labour Relations Board (PSLRB) and the Public Service Staffing Tribunal (PSST) merged. This PSST website is in the process of being phased out in favour of the new PSLREB website. During a period of transition, this PSST website will continue to provide archived reports, decisions, and transitional information. Please visit the new PSLREB website for the most recent content.

Lay-off Complaints

If you are planning to file a lay-off complaint

You should review the Tribunal’s Procedural Guide. 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 Tribunal’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 PSST Regulations and the Tribunal’s Procedural Guide.

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 Tribunal.

If you have other questions about the Tribunal

The “Frequently Asked Questions” section of the website provides useful information for complainants.
