Every business is vulnerable when it comes to fraud

With the holidays approaching, along with the increased commercial pace, fraud will likely be rampant. Business fraud is something that costs businesses in Alberta and across Canada millions of dollars each year. Fending off business fraud requires vigilance and plans that involve owners and staff members. Fraudsters are enterprising, and they will always come up with new, more innovative strategies to get past that first line of defence to gain access to emails, social media and more.

Survey finds high prevalence of workplace discrimination

A consulting company conducted an online poll from April 10 through May 1 among over 5,000 employees of large companies with employee numbers exceeding 1,000. The aim was to judge the level of discrimination in workplaces across Canada, including Alberta. The survey focused on inclusion and diversity in recruitment, advancement, retention and commitment of leadership in the surveyed companies.

Why do so many adults neglect to draft wills?

According to a recent survey, over 50% of Canadian adults, including many in Alberta, have not taken the trouble to do estate planning. The survey also addressed why the individuals who don't have wills have not made the effort to have them. Almost 30% of those without signed wills felt they could not afford to have wills drafted, or they had no idea how to go about establishing a will.

Employment contract disputes involving implied obligations

Many people do not realize that, when they sign employment contracts, they agree to more than what is in writing. Many employment contract disputes involve implied obligations of which the parties were not aware.
