The Employment Standards Act is important legislation that sets minimum standards for workplaces in B.C. However, it has been 15 years since any major changes were made to the Act and 25 years since government’s last comprehensive review.  Workplaces have changed significantly in the last quarter-century. The introduction of new technology and mobile workplaces have changed how work gets done. The structure of work has changed, for example, with more part-time employment. The place of work has changed, with more people working remotely, from home or in virtual teams.
