A new bill giving workers up to three hours paid leave to get vaccinated against COVID-19 could become the law in Alberta as early as Wednesday night.
Proposed amendments to the employment standards code would provide a COVID-19 vaccine leave and make it illegal for an employer to fire or discipline an employee who takes time off to be vaccinated.
Labour and Immigration Minister Jason Copping said at a press
Wednesday that the bill is written so that the new rules take effect as soon as the bill passes first reading, which could happen as early as Wednesday evening.
