This tool kit was developed by the Government of Alberta to help business owners and their employees understand and comply with the Employment Standards Code and Regulation.
Following the Code is your responsibility and this tool kit is designed to help you do that.
The laws for Employment Standards are minimum requirements. Some tools, forms and a list of resources are provided to assist business owners in meeting or exceeding their minimum requirements. You may use the sample tools provided, or you may develop your own.
Not all requirements under the Employment Standards Code and Regulation are discussed in this resource.
This is not a definitive guide to the legislation and does not exempt readers from their responsibilities under applicable legislation.
In case of inconsistency between this resource and the Employment Standards legislation, the legislation will always prevail
