Business law targets unsolicited communications

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission monitors the marketing methods of businesses in Alberta. One of the many business laws with which business owners must comply deals with unsolicited communications. The regulations aim to protect the interests of the Canadian public by regulating and supervising telecommunications and broadcasting activities.

Dealing with wills and estates in a digital world

Technological development has changed how most people in Alberta and across Canada navigate their daily lives, including their finances. Goods are ordered and paid for online and dealing with bills, bank accounts and more are done on smartphones, laptops and PCs. This has also brought about changes in the way wills and estates are handled.

Various laws protect workers against discrimination and more

Workers in Alberta are protected under various laws, such as the Human Rights Act, Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Employment Standards Code. While most employees know about laws that protect them from discrimination, they may be unaware of other rights they have as workers. For example, under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, workers have the right to refuse work orders that threaten their safety. With some exceptions, employers must pay workers who reported for duty for at least three hours, even if they were sent home without working for three hours. Those who work for more than three hours must receive compensation for the hours they worked.

Commercial law: Terms and conditions can benefit all

When consumers are faced with long lists of terms and conditions, many tend to agree without bothering to read it. Though commercial laws serve to protect both consumers and businesses in Alberta, and across Canada, not all business owners comply with established standards. Terms and conditions can serve to contain important details about the company and its protocols, while also serving the interests of the consumers.

What to include when writing an offer to purchase real estate

Purchasing a home is typically an exciting endeavour for anyone. However, people in Alberta should not let the excitement cause them to lose sight of the importance of a well-written purchase offer for real estate. Such a proposal must contain the value of the offer along with the amount available for a deposit. The next step would be to list the terms and conditions of the purchase offer.
