Family Friendly Workplaces – acknowledging the relationship between work and home

FamilyOn January 1st this year, the Fair and Family Workplaces Act took effect in Alberta. Labour Minister Christina Gray spoke about the importance of the legislation as the first step in updating labour laws after nearly 30 years of inaction.  She went on to say “Albertans deserve fair and family-friendly workplaces that support a strong economy and ensure they can take care of their loved ones.” Key changes include domestic violence leave. Providing leave allows workers who are experiencing violence to deal with related issues such as attending court, counselling or in finding housing without fear of losing their employment. Remaining employed is a key pathway out of domestic violence.
