Hiring & Employment

If you employ an individual as an Audiologist or Speech–Language Pathologist, it is important for you to understand your responsibilities as an employer.

Prior to commencing employment, employers are required to verify that all Audiologists and Speech–Language Pathologists that they wish to employ or engage are registered with the Council of Healthcare Professionals of NL/College of Audiologists and Speech–Language Pathologists of NL (the College), and eligible to practice, as per the Regulated Health Professions Act.

Employers are forbidden to employ or engage an Audiologist or Speech–Language Pathologist unless the Audiologist or Speech–Language Pathologist is registered and holds a valid certificate of practice granted by the Council.

Employers may verify that an Audiologist or Speech–Language Pathologist is registered with the College by referring to the council’s registry. Furthermore, employers may verify information regarding a registrant of the College by contacting the Registrar, secretary@nlchp.ca.
