  • Lack of employability skills;
  • History of unsuccessful intervention; and
  • Other social factors (e.g. family situation)

Terminating Employees

Terminating Employees

Things don’t always work out. Letting go of employees is never easy. Most employers terminate employees only as a last resort. This is why we decided sharing this information is important in reducing any stress associated with employee termination.

TERMINATION FACTS:

  • Alberta’s Employment Standards Code specifies the notice period employers must give when asking someone to leave a job. This termination notice period depends on how long the employee has worked for you.
  • You must give termination notice in writing and the employee works and is paid regular pay until the end of the notice period.
  • You can offer pay instead of a termination notice. In this case, the employee ends work immediately but is paid for the duration of the notice period.
  • If you ask an employee to stop working immediately or partway through a notice period, you must pay the employee until the end of the notice period.
  • You do not need to provide termination notice if the termination is temporary (up to 59 days)
  • You do not need to provide termination notice if an employee refuses your offer of reasonable alternative work
  • You do not need to provide termination notice if if work is unavailable because of a strike or lockout
  • You do not need to provide termination notice if the employee is terminated for just cause (e.g. theft, violence…)

Resume Bank for Employers

Beauty Service and Retail Professional Resume Bank

ATTN: Alberta Beauty Industry Employers

We know it’s hard to find dependable staff.

ESG’s resume bank is a free service to both, employers and service providers, dedicated to maximize success rate of meeting staffing demands.

Don’t get swamped with ineligible resumes! Cut time with ESG’s Resume Bank. Our resume bank allows you to browse anonymously and search profiles by industry skills.

How does the Resume Bank work?

Service Providers and support workers all over Alberta upload their resumes to maximize their exposure to hiring employers. All pertinent information is available, such as education and experience, and most importantly, all the technical skills (services) they are certified to perform.

Though ESG asks all individuals to only include skills for which they are certified to perform, we recommend always conducting your own background check and confirming documentation.

Employers are able to browse and review profiles on the Resume bank after creating an Employer account. If you find any profiles you are interested in, submit your interest directly to them. We recommend always meeting for interviews in a public place.

Why are the Resumes discreet?

The resumes are discreet to protect the identity and privacy of Service Providers all over Alberta.

Beauty Service Resume Bank

Our resume bank allows you to upload your information for Alberta beauty industry employers to view.

BEFORE UPLOADING…consider the following notes for protecting your identity when posting your resume:

  • ESG will never ask you to include your social insurance number, full name, home address, driver’s license number, credit card or bank account numbers, or other personal identifying information on your online resume.
  • Cell phone numbers are generally unlisted, home phone numbers are not, therefore, provide your cell phone number instead of giving out your home phone number.
  • Instead of listing your home address, consider disclosing your city and province only. In general, employers use email to get in touch with candidates, not snail mail.
  • Creating an email address that doesn’t include your full name or other identifying information to be used only for your job search is the safest way to go.
  • Do not include your references in a resume or cover letter. Save that information for when they’ve asked you in for an interview.
  • Always meet with an employer in a public place.

CREATE YOUR RESUME.
