Offensive behaviour can cause hostile work environments

Anyone in Alberta who shares his or her workplace with other people might have to endure with some indignities. While it remains playful and innocent, good-natured name-calling, teasing and harmless flirting, it might be acceptable. However, such behaviour can become offensive in an instant, changing conditions from pleasant to hostile work environments.

Termination: Lost wages and disability payments?

Employees in Alberta who were dismissed and then became disabled during the termination notice period might have questions about their rights when it comes to payment for lost wages. A recent decision made by The Alberta Court of Queen's Bench provides clarity about the termination of employment with a reasonable notice period. The court found that double dipping is not allowed.

On what grounds can a will be challenged?

Losing a loved one is understandably traumatic, and it could be even more difficult for a surviving loved one to learn that he or she was unfairly treated or disinherited by the deceased. There could be many questions about contesting the will and not a lot of time in which to take action. Learning about the steps to take under Alberta laws will be a time-sensitive matter to deal with before the estate is settled.

Understand the responsibilities of an estate representative

When a person in Alberta does estate planning, he or she usually nominates a trustworthy person as the executor of the will. This is also known as an estate representative whose task it will be to administer the estate of the deceased person. It could be a daunting task, and it might be sensible to consider the implications carefully before accepting to play that role.
