BC Paid Sick Leave Program

Effective January 1, 2022, employees covered by the Employment Standards Act (Act) in BC are entitled to up to 5 days of employer paid leave for personal illness and injury per year.

Here’s What Businesses Need to Know
The new provision provides for 5 paid sick leave days per year for employees that have been employed for 90 days or more. This also includes part time workers. This leave will also replace the temporary 3 days of paid sick leave that employees are currently entitled to, but be in addition to the 3 days of unpaid sick leave.
