Lunch + Learn: Implementing Paid Sick Leave in Seniors’ Care & Living

On November 24, 2021, the B.C. Government announced that the province will become the first in Canada to require that every employer give their employees five paid sick days per year.

Join BC Care Providers Association (BCCPA) and EngAge BC on March 9 for an in-depth look at the impacts of the new permanent paid sick leave provision on the seniors living and continuing care sector.

  • Who is eligible for paid sick leave?
  • How is sick leave pay calculated for full-time, part-time and casual workers?
  • When it is reasonable to require proof of illness?
  • And more!

While all are welcome to attend, this webinar is intended for non-unionized employers under the Employment Standards Act.
