After continued pressure from the AHLA, the Minister of Labour has further extended the deadline for temporary layoffs from September 30, 2021 to December 31, 2021 for members who told us they needed it. Once again, this will allow members to maintain employment relationships with their staff and delay potentially devastating termination costs.

This advocacy win was made possible because hotels worked together through the AHLA to find a solution that meets the needs of employers and employees.

The AHLA encourages properties that benefited from this extension to contact their MLA, as well as Minister Shandro at labour.minister@gov.ab.ca, to thank them for their support during this challenging time.
