CLC amendments to new leaves have taken effect

Federally regulated employees on a leave of absence for compassionate care, a critically ill child or the disappearance or death of a child under the Canada Labour Code are now allowed to interrupt the leave to take a sick leave or a work-related illness or injury leave if they fall ill.

Amendments to the Code allowing for the changes were included in Bill C-31, the Economic Action Plan 2014 Act, No. 1, Parliament passed the bill in June, but the amendments affecting the Code did not come into effect until Oct. 12.
