The Alberta Human Rights Act (AHR Act) prohibits discrimination in employment based on the protected grounds of race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religious beliefs, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, physical disability, mental disability, marital status, family status, source of income, and sexual orientation. Employers are expected to create an inclusive workplace that respects the dignity of every individual. Employees can play an important role in creating an inclusive workplace by understanding their rights and responsibilities under the AHR Act.

Employees have the right to:

  • work in a respectful, inclusive work environment free of discrimination
  • be accommodated based on their needs related to the protected grounds in the AHR Act
  • make a complaint to the Alberta Human Rights Commission if they believe discrimination occurred based on a protected ground under the AHR Act.

Join us as Candace Martens from the Worker’s Resource Centre provides information on your rights and responsibilities as an employee.

Zoom log-in details will be emailed 1 day prior to session. Please check the email you register with or contact shelley.jackson@portagecollege.ca
