British Columbia’s Ministry of Labour, Citizens’ Services and Open Government has released a report detailing themes that emerged from meetings with stakeholder groups on ways to update employment standards.
More than 30 groups representing business, labour and other stakeholder areas met with the ministry between December 2010 and February 2011.
The areas addressed in the report include: the role and purpose of minimum wage and how the minimum wage should be established and adjusted; flexibility in employment standards; clarifying and simplifying standards; improving the way information on standards is disseminated; improving enforcement activities; and ensuring that complaints are dealt with more quickly.
The report is available on the ministry’s website at www.labour.gov.bc.ca/esb/.
