My employer (BC) is considering a paid time off policy for employees to get their vaccination. Are there any special considerations we should take into account? Are there any sample policies floating around you know of?
Funny you should ask. We just wrote extensively on this topic a couple of weeks ago. As you may know, Sask adopted paid COVID vaccination leave (3 hours) and there’s talk of BC’s doing the same. If you can’t find the two pieces on the HRI site, let me know and I’ll gmail them to you. firstname.lastname@example.org. As for the last part of the question, no, I haven’t seen any paid vaccination leave policy but I’ll look around. That’s something we should probably include as part of the HRI service. Hope that helps. Glenn
