Bereavement Leave: For the death of an immediate or extended family member, employees with at least 90 days of continuous leave are entitled to three days of bereavement leave each year. Unless otherwise specified in the work contract or collective bargaining agreement, this leave is unpaid.
Long term and Injury Leave: Employees who have worked for at least 90 days will take up to 16 weeks of unpaid leave.
Bereavement Leave: Employees are entitled to three days of compulsory leave in the event of the death of a close relative. This leave may be taken in any order; the employee is not required to take it in that order.
Work-Related Injury Leave: In British Columbia, any significant accidents and deaths must be reported to WorkSafeBC as soon as possible after they occur.
In addition, within three days of an injury, the supervisor must disclose any of the following:
During a work-related accident, the employer passes out.
The employee is taken to a medical facility for treatment (i.e. hospital, clinic).
The employee is treated for his or her injuries.
Owing to the incident, the employee is unable to return to work.
A surgical implant was broken as a result of the accident (i.e. an artificial limb, glasses, dentures, hearing aid, etc.)
If the employee demands that the boss file a survey.
For the first 10 weeks of leave, WorkSafeBC will specify a pay amount at which the employee will be entitled. The fund will either cancel the compensation or grant the employee permanent disability after this time limit has passed.
Personal Emergency Leave: 10 days for personal sickness, accident, or medical emergency, or for a family member's illness, injury, or medical emergency.
Family Medical Leave: In a 26-week cycle, you will take up to 8 weeks of unpaid leave.
Work-Related Injury Leave: The contractor must pay 100 percent of the daily wage on the day of the accident and 90 percent for the first 14 days of work-related injury leave. The Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé and de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) assumes payment to the employee on the 15th day at a cost of 90% of the net profits.
If the employee becomes medically or mentally injured, they could be eligible for extra payments based on their age and the seriousness of the injuries.
