Workplace Legislation for Farms: FAQs and Webinars

Alberta Labour has put together a “Workplace legislation for farms” frequently asked questions (FAQ) sheet providing information regarding new rules under the Labour Relations Code and Employment Standards Code.

To help inform Albertans of changes to the Employment Standards Code, webinars specific to farms and ranches will be available to interested stakeholders beginning Friday December 1, 2017.  You are encouraged to register for one of the available sessions. Please note that multiple individuals from the same organization may participate under a single registration.

Available Webinars:

  • Overview of Changes to Employment Standards
  • Employment Standards for Farms and Ranches

In addition, information is now available on the Government of Alberta’s website that reflects legislation coming into force on January 1, 2018 for core entitlements. Information on legislation that is in force until December 31, 2017 will continue to be available.
