Information Sessions - Employment Standards

Learn more about changes to Alberta’s Employment Standards Code and Regulation during in-person information sessions.


Alberta’s new Employment Standards Code and Regulation came into effect Jan. 1, 2018.

Employers are invited to attend a free information session to improve their understanding of the new rules. The sessions, held in partnership with the Alberta Chambers of Commerce, are available in communities across the province.

During the two-hour session, employment standards officers will give a 75-minute presentation, followed by a 45-minute discussion period, covering:

  • changes to general holiday pay
  • overtime banking
  • averaging agreements
  • job-protected leaves
  • deductions
