Employment discrimination in Alberta

Alberta employers are prohibited from discriminating against workers based on a variety of different statuses. Protections include prohibitions against discrimination based on a worker's race, national origin, colour, religion, physical or mental disability, age, ancestry, sexual orientation, marital or family status, or income source.

Legal issues related to construction can be frustrating as you work to get a project completed. A construction lien can also be complicated, bogging down a project further and causing costs to add up while deadlines are unmet.
