The Province of Alberta is likely to introduce compassionate care leave provisions into its Employment Standards Code in the very near future. The leave is designed to provide up to 8 weeks of unpaid leave for employees to provide care or support to a seriously ill family member if the employee is their primary caregiver. There are likely to be eligibility requirements such as 52 consecutive weeks of employment with the employer and the requirement of a medical certificate proving the illness. We will keep you apprised of the status of this prospective legislation.
