Your Rights at Work
Welcome to CPLEA Rights at Work: a collection of resources funded by the Human Rights Education and Multiculturalism Fund.
We are very interested in your feedback. After viewing the resources below please complete our short survey.
CPLEA talked to young people from Alberta’s multicultural communities and the service providers that work with them. We asked them what they wanted to know about the law and employment and we heard a lot of stories that ended with, “Can my boss actually do that?” Below are videos with printable answers to the questions we collected.
