Minister of Labour, Seamus O’Regan Jr., announced that the Government of Canada has reached an important milestone in the process to make 10 days of paid sick leave a reality. All Canadian employers, employer representatives, unions, workers, and other key stakeholders are invited to share their feedback on the proposed Regulations Amending Certain Regulations Made Under the Canada Labour Code (Medical Leave with Pay) by August 15, 2022.
The Government is looking for input on various elements of the new paid sick leave provisions, such as:
- the regular rate of wages for employees who are not paid on the basis of time or who work irregular hours;
- the eligibility for paid sick leave for employees who have multiple employers; and
- the enforcement mechanism and promotion of compliance with the new provisions.
Following the consultation period, the regulations will be finalized and published. They are currently planned to come into effect on December 1, 2022, along with the legislation. To learn more, click here.
