WAGES AT WORK

WORKSHOP

 

Wages are often the largest expense in a business.  Prevent time consuming claims against your business by ensuring you are following the Employment Standards Code and Regulation.

 

A good understanding of Alberta’s minimum standards for pay entitlements leads to improved employer/employee relations.  It also helps employers to establish appropriate company policy and avoid policies that may require time-consuming (and costly) corrections later.

 

The WAGES AT WORK workshop provides a comprehensive hands-on learning experience designed to provide participants with a better understanding of the rights and obligations of employers and employees under the Employment Standards Code.

 

Topics to be discussed:

¨        Payment of earnings

¨        Minimum wage

¨        Payroll records

¨        Statement of earnings and deductions

¨        Hours of work and rest

¨        Overtime and overtime pay

¨        Vacation and vacation pay

¨        General Holidays and general holiday pay

¨        Termination of employment

¨        Maternity and parental leave

¨        Employment of adolescents and young persons

¨        Self-employed/subcontractor relationships

 

This workshop is targeted at business owners, managers, supervisors, human resource practitioners, payroll and accounting administrators.
