(Jan. 21/18): On January 8, Calgary-based labour lawyer Tom Ross led an insightful webinar, Understanding the 2018 Alberta Labour Changes, in regard to Alberta’s Bill 17: The Fair and Family-friendly Workplaces Act, which includes numerous changes to its Employment Standards and Labour Relations Codes.

More than 275 members logged on to the presentation and discussion, which tackled how operators and employers can adjust to changes to overtime, scheduling, holiday pay, sick leave and termination rules and regulations.

Following Tom’s 45-minute presentation, he and Mark Von Schellwitz, Western Vice President for Restaurants Canada, answered questions posed by viewers in real-time, covering a wide range of topics such as parental leave, uniform deposits and leaves of absence.
