Registry of employers with unpaid judgments

Information is posted about employers with unsatisfied judgments against them in Alberta Courts for contravening employment standards.

The legislation on this page is now in effect

For information on Employment Standards legislation that was in force until December 31, 2017, go to https://work.alberta.ca/employment-standards-2017.html

Basic rules

  • All unsatisfied judgments from Employment Standards are made public.
  • If any enforcement action requiring payment has been issued as a result of a complaint and the employer fails to comply, the action is filed with the Court.
  • Once filed with the Court, the action is enforceable as a Court judgment.
  • A judgment may be collected through means other than direct payment from an employer. See Judgment collection for more information.
