    In Alberta –
    An employee working for multiple employers, 1 being our corporation and the other being a contractor of our corporation. Is working shifts for the same both us and the contractor on the same day, up to 16 hours in a day. There are safety concerns, what rights do we have as the employer to stipulate hours worked at the contractor or with us?

    I see. I thought you were implying that the worker was YOUR employee but working under the contractor’s supervision. If the worker is employed by the contractor, then, no, you can’t control the schedule except indirectly via the contract with the contractor, e.g., by stipulating the hours and duration of work taking place at your site.  You can–and should–also require the contractor to comply with all applicable ESA, OHS and other laws in performing the work. In addition, the contractor isn’t required to share the work schedules with you–although you can negotiate such a requirement into your contract to the extent the schedule is for work at your own site. Don’t really see the basis or justification for requiring access to work schedules of contractor’s worker at other sites.
    If you want to continue the conversation, please send me your number at glennd@bongarde.com and I’ll ring you up. Glenn
