Hiring Practices

Employment Equity

We are committed to ensuring equal opportunity to promote the more equitable participation of women, Aboriginal peoples of Canada, persons with disabilities and members of racially visible communities. By voluntarily providing personal information on the application form or resume you will assist us in effectively meeting this commitment to improve employment opportunities for members of under-represented groups. We strive to maintain a workforce that reflects the diversity of the Nova Scotia working population.

Hiring of Relatives

When applying for a job, you are asked to indicate if you have any immediate family members currently employed by the NSLC. Immediate family members are not to be employed where there is potential for conflict of interest, or perceived conflict of interest, between the employee and the immediate family member. Immediate family means spouse, or common law spouse, child, parent or legally designated guardian, grandparent, grandchild, brother, sister, and in-laws of the same degree. Current step relationships and relatives residing in the same household are treated in the same manner as outlined above.

Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act

Information requested for employment purposes is treated as confidential, subject to compliance with the disclosure provisions of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, for the purpose of assessing suitability for employment with us. Personal information that we may collect is not sold or otherwise transferred outside the organization except as authorized by law.
