The Government of Alberta has passed legislation that allows Albertans to access job-protected leave to get the COVID-19 vaccine. This means that employers must give employees up to 3 hours of paid, job-protected leave per vaccine. All full-time and part-time employees are eligible, regardless of length of employment. Please talk to your employees to get their vaccines as soon as they are eligible to:
- protect your employees and their families,
- protect their colleagues and guests, and
- reduce the spread of COVID-19, making it possible for people to gather and travel sooner.
