A non-competition clause stops the employee from working at a competitor for a certain number of months after separating from the company while a non-solicitation clause allows the employee to work anywhere, but with one caveat: they cannot solicit their former employer’s clients.
Bill 208 defines harassment as being inappropriate conduct, comment, display, action, or gesture by a person that constitutes a threat to the health or safety of the worker and that is either based on (i) certain enumerated grounds (such as colour, gender, or place of origin); or which (ii) adversely affects the worker’s psychological or physical well-being.
The Alberta Employment Standards Code states that overtime hours are those in excess of either 8 hours in each workday or 44 hours per week, whichever is greater. A workweek begins and ends on Saturday at midnight. Further, it is important to emphasize that overtime is not calculated weekly and not per pay period.
