The Standing Committee on Alberta’s Economic Future requests your submission regarding the Employment Standards (Firefighter Leave) Amendment Act
The intent of Bill 201
is to entitle part-time firefighters occasional unpaid leave to assist in fire services. Additionally, if passed, it would prohibit employers, without good cause, from preventing a person to act as a part-time firefighter (if the individual has informed the employer), or from refusing to employ a person because they are a part-time firefighter.
The Government of Alberta is inviting interested parties to provide a submission to the Standing Committee on Alberta’s Economic Future on this matter. Please note that submissions and the names of submitters may be made public and parties wishing to make an oral presentation to the Committee, are requested to clearly indicate this in their written submission.
All written submissions are to be forwarded to:
Standing Committee on Alberta’s Economic Future
c/o Committee Clerk, 3rd Floor
9820 - 107 Street
Edmonton, Alberta T5K 1E7
Email submissions can be sent to EconomicFuture.Committee@assembly.ab.ca
The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, June 6, 2018
and questions for the committee can be provided to 780.415.2878.
