April 18: Deadline for Feedback on Changes to Employment Standards Laws


Alberta’s Employment Standards Code hasn’t been significantly updated in almost 30 years. So the government is conducting a review of the law and is seeking feedback through April 18, 2017 on the following topics:

  • Maternity, parental and compassionate care leaves
  • Introducing leave for the care of critically ill children
  • Other job-protected leaves in relation to the federal Employment Insurance program
  • Improving enforcement and administration.
