False Calgary business closure numbers may affect business law

Statistics are often used to inform lawmakers and citizens. Figures about the number of businesses that closed during the economic downturn in Alberta are often quoted in business law discussions, but how accurate are the commonly cited numbers? A recent analysis shows that the oft-cited statistic of 7,000 or even 11,000 lost businesses in Calgary may not be as accurate as previously thought.

Changes to business law catch some Alberta employers off-guard

Laws governing employers can change quickly, so it is important for business owners to stay aware of new developments. In Alberta, some owners have been caught off-guard by business law changes affecting labour. While most were aware of minimum wage changes, regulations governing holiday pay are also going to affect companies across the province.

Business law changes in Alberta for 2018

A new year often brings legislative changes for Canadians. In Alberta, business owners should be aware of the changes to business law that come into effect in 2018. Along with changes to labour laws, tax increases on carbon and renovation permits may affect businesses across the province. Workers should also take note of the changes which affect their employee rights.
