Bc labour laws need updating

Bc labour laws need updating

Postby maryjane48 » Sep 4th, 2017, 3:57 pm

A labour advocacy group is calling for changes to B.C.'s Employment Standards Act, saying the current legislation is failing to protect workers including the province's burgeoning tech sector.

This isn't a "labour advocacy group", these are NDP stooges wanting to unionize more people. The head guy is with the Communist Center for Poverty Advancement (CCPA). It's so transparent and disgusting. Just disgusting.
Not sure why I bother with a signature as it seems to just randomly disappear on a regular basis. Especially if it offends liberal snowflakes.

Personally I'd like to see enforcement of the existing laws. I'm not a fan of companies paying employees with an envelope of cash at the end of the week saying you are a contractor so no deductions.

And many many employees ask for this deal as they then claim little income.

However that is ending as CRA has been implementing payrol audits where when they find payments to contractors (which is fine) they are requiring that a T4A be filed for the amounts so that CRA can verify on tax returns.

Much like we never used to have t4's this is a new added burden on employers because other people are dishonest. It will however direct CRA as to who to audit better and I like that part, so coin toss.
