Potential Changes to The Employment Standards Act – Voice Your Opinion

RE: BCLI Employment Standards Act Reform Project; Sick and Family Responsibility Leave; Statutory Holiday Pay – (optional) action required by March 31st, 2019
Dear Members and Business Colleagues,
In case you aren’t already aware, by being a member of the CV Chamber of Commerce you are also a member of the broader BC Chamber of Commerce. There is great benefit to this as it helps us with communication and networking to a much larger base of resources.
As such, on Tuesday the BC Chamber circulated a letter template encouraging local chambers and businesses to enter in their details and submit the letter via email to the attention of Harry Bains, MLA, The Honourable Minister of Labour for British Columbia.
We are supporting this and submitting this letter on behalf of the CV Chamber of Commerce. This letter is attached and available for you to complete and submit as well, if you wish.
Please see the attached letter regarding the potential change to the Employment Standards Act.
  • Letter One – A template from the BC Chamber of Commerce for your review and optional action. Note that action is required prior to March 31st, 2019 if you choose.
If you would like to receive an editable format of letter one, please email us, and we will be glad to provide you one.
For more information about the survey, issues and results, I encourage you to review the following links.
