BC Employment Standards Act

HR Tech Group Feedback Submission to BC’s Employment Standards Branch – March 27, 2019

As a result of the provincial government modernization review of BC’s Employment Standards Act, and given the critical importance of the regulation’s high tech worker overtime exemption to our industry’s competitiveness, we worked with Fasken to write a submission asking that the high tech exemption remain as is within the Act.  You can review and download a copy of the HR Tech Group submission here.

Thank you to the team at Fasken for your support and guidance in this important endeavour for the tech industry!
