The Government of Alberta recently conducted public consultations related to proposed changes to the province’s workplace laws. The review seeks to update the Employment Standards Code – which covers non-unionized workers – and the Labour Relations Code – which governs unionized workplaces.
As part of its goal to protect interns and promote fairer workplaces, the Association submitted recommendations to both legislative reviews. You can see our Employment Standards Code submissions here (as well as comments on the same subject from 2014 here) and our Labour Relations Code submissions here.
The Association looks forward to hearing the results of the government’s review in the near future.
