Bill 19 Introduces Amendments to Personal Illness or Injury Leave

On March 28, 2022, British Columbia introduced Bill 19 - 2022, Employment Standards Amendment Act, 2022 (Bill 19) for first reading. Bill 19 addresses issues raised after the province’s Employment Standards Act (ESA) was amended to entitle eligible employees in the province to eight personal illness or injury leave days—five paid and three unpaid—commencing January 1, 2022. If passed in its current form, Bill 19 would make the following amendments to the ESA:

“Calendar Year” to Replace “Employment Year”

Currently, section 49.1 of the ESA entitles an eligible employee to eight personal illness or injury leave days, five paid and three unpaid, “in each employment year.”

Bill 19 would amend section 49.1 so that the employee’s entitlement to the eight personal illness or injury leave days would be “in each calendar year.”
