Bill 32 provides flexibility for businesses struggling through COVID-19
Alberta employers struggling through the COVID-19 pandemic recently received a “shot in the arm” courtesy of the provincial government.
Bill 32, the Restoring Balance in Alberta’s Workplaces Act, 2020, received royal assent on July 29.
The act is intended to provide employees and employers with clearer and more transparent rules promoting fairness and productivity — including more clarity about rest periods and temporary layoff notices.
