Employment Standards Code and Labour Relations Code

About the policy

In February 2017, the Alberta Government announced they were planning to make changes to the Employment Standards Code (ESC) and Labour Relations Code (LRC). Together, these acts legislate most of the employer-employee relationship, and changes to them could have far-reaching effects for our business community.

What we are doing

We were an active voice on this issue, submitting three formal letters on the proposed changes to the ESC and LRC, creating a tool to allow members send a prepared letter to their MLA, and providing an in-depth analysis on the proposed changes.
