Government is engaging with the public on potential changes to support job creators and protect workers.
Albertans now have an opportunity to provide input on employment rules that directly affect them by taking a survey on topics like vacation time, general holiday pay and youth employment.
“We are committed to getting Albertans back to work, which is why we moved quickly to pass the Open for Business Act in the spring. Now we want to hear from the public on how we can continue to make Alberta’s employment rules simpler and more efficient. I encourage everyone to go online and submit their thoughts.”
Jason Copping, Minister of Labour and Immigration
The online survey on employment standards rules is available until Nov. 28. It includes questions on vacation time, general holiday pay, youth employment rules, hours of work averaging agreements, temporary layoff notices, group terminations, termination pay, administrative penalties, employees’ statements of earnings, and variances and exemptions to employment standards rules.
Feedback from the public will be used to inform potential changes to labour laws.
