British Columbia Law Institute Consultation Paper on Employment Standards Act

The British Columbia Law Institute has published a consultation paper on the province's Employment Standards Act.

The Act sets minimum standards for terms of employment and working conditions, and applies to most workplaces in British Columbia.

The paper contains 78 tentative recommendations dealing with all of the following areas:
  •  scope of the legislation
  •  hiring of employees
  •  hours of work, overtime and flextime
  •  wages and wage payment
  •  annual vacation and special leaves
  •  termination of employment
  •  vulnerable classes of employees
  •  complaints and enforcement
  •  enforcement mechanisms 
The paper examines comparable legislation in other jurisdictions in Canada and abroad.
