As workers, things come up in our lives that require us to take time away from our jobs. Whether it’s taking a sick day, a vacation, or time off to deal with family responsibilities, life intervenes.
We’ve published four new pages on the legal aspects of taking time off work:
- Taking a Vacation: Your rights around taking a vacation and earning vacation pay.
- Taking Sick Days: The rules around taking sick days off from work.
- Taking Time Off to Have or Parent a Child: Your rights to take time off work to have or parent a child.
- Taking Time Off for Personal or Family Reasons: Your rights to take time off work to deal with personal or family issues.
One of the key factors affecting your rights to take time off work is whether you’re covered by the main law protecting workers in BC, the Employment Standards Act. With this in mind, we’ve published a new page on Are You Covered by BC’s Employment Standards Law?
