Alberta's education minister is investigating employment agreements signed by Catholic school teachers over concerns they could be fired for being in gay or common-law relationships.

David Eggen says he has told all 17 Catholic boards to send him copies of their agreements to see if they meet legal standards.

The Calgary and Edmonton Catholic boards confirmed this week that teachers must sign agreements promising to live by Catholic values.

The Calgary board says those values include not being in common-law or same-sex relationships.
