Young Workers – Human Rights

Workers have the Right to be Free from Harassment and Discrimination at Work

The Alberta Human Rights Commission is the agency responsible for hearing and investigating complaints of discrimination based on the protected grounds of race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religious beliefs, gender, gender expression and identity, age, physical disability, mental disability, marital status, family status, source of income and sexual orientation. Find out more about the protected grounds here.

If you have concerns about your human rights in the workplace, or wish to file a complaint, you can contact the Commission or call their confidential inquiry line in Edmonton at 780-427-7661 or toll free by following the directions on their contact page.
