Module five: Human rights and the employment process

A large number of human rights complaints have to do with recruitment, hiring, and evaluation of employee performance. Developing effective and non-discriminatory human resource processes is important for creating a respectful work environment. It also ensures that all employees are treated fairly and equitably.

This module will help participants:

  • develop non-discriminatory job descriptions, hiring practices and interviews, and policies and processes related to employees' performance,
  • develop non-discriminatory policies and processes in areas such as drug and alcohol testing, and
  • understand how the Alberta Human Rights Act protects employees and job applicants, and how managers and supervisors can make non-discriminatory decisions that are based on job-related criteria.
