A big win for our advocacy efforts providing insight to the government from the BC Chamber partnering with our fellow business organizations providing comment via the consultation process on the ESA – the new legislation contains no changes to existing provisions for sick leave and statutory holidays! The government did add some new provisions for job-protected leave to support people fleeing domestic violence and those who need critical illness leave to care for a sick child or loved one. Overall, the ESA amendments are fairly limited in scope. The provincial government could have probably gone further, but they didn’t. Of course, business didn’t get everything we would have wanted to see (ie. averaging hours of work, etc.).
