What hours apply when hiring workers?

Our workers are available any day as long as Alberta Labour regulations are followed for shift work and holidays.


I’m not able to pick up the employee, are they able to come directly to the job site?

We offer bus tickets to workers when necessary, allowing travel to within Edmonton, St. Albert, and Sherwood Park. If start time is affected by this, we can work with you, the employer, to coordinate picking workers up at Bissell Centre or at a prearranged meeting point.

For job sites in Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, Leduc – Nisku, or farms in the surrounding areas, employers must be willing to pick the workers up.

Bissell Workforce may be able assist with transportation of groups of workers, but this is not guaranteed.


What if I have questions or concerns on the day of the job?

We have staff on call during working hours if there are any questions or concerns about our workers.


What does it cost me to participate as an Employer in the Bissell Workforce Program?

After Policies and Procedures are signed, you simply pay the wages the worker earns, following Alberta Labour legislation. We cover WCB premiums and do not charge administrative fees as we are supported by the Government of Alberta – we are able to offer Bissell Workforce at no cost to you, the employer.
