• New Workplace Laws and How They May Affect You
  • September 22, 2017
  • On June 7, 2017, the Fair and Family-Friendly Workplaces Act (Bill 17) received royal assent. This Act sets out much-publicized changes to Alberta’s two major pieces of employment and labour legislation: the Employment Standards Code and the Labour Relations Code. The Employment Standards Code sets out the minimum requirements that all employers must provide to employees in Alberta. The Labour Relations Code sets out the law in Alberta with respect to the organization and regulation of unions and unionized workplaces.
