Workshops and Forums

About 80 per cent of human rights complaints originate in the workplace and employers have a responsibility to ensure their workplaces are free of discrimination.
Business owners and executives, managers and supervisors, human resource specialists, union representatives, employees, and other stakeholders with human rights responsibilities want answers to questions such as:
  • What areas and grounds are protected under Alberta's human rights legislation?
  • What are an employer's legal responsibilities for addressing and preventing harassment and discrimination based on the protected grounds?
  • How does human rights legislation affect hiring practices and job requirements?
  • What are the legal requirements for employers to accommodate employees with disabilities or other needs protected under Alberta's human rights legislation?
  • What is undue hardship and when does it apply?
  • What is the impact of human rights law on employee benefits?
