1st Annual Family Day in BC

We have been waiting an entire year for this day!  It arrived!  That statutory holiday sent from the legislature to tide us over until Easter.

Well here in Victoria, the day was overcast with a bit of drizzle but there were many events happening throughout the Capital Regional District:

For BC employers this additional holiday comes at a cost.

All BC employers with employees who have been employed for 30 days and worked 15 of the 30 days prior to the statutory holiday are required to give those employees their workday off, give them a day in lieu or pay them in accordance with the BC Employment Standards Act if they work on the day.

Additionally, employers that close on statutory holidays must also factor in loss of profits.

In our office, we enjoyed the day off.  Resting, rejuvenating and getting ready for the busy tax season.  We hope you enjoyed the first annual Family Day!
