BCFED – What do you do when you are too sick to work?

What do you do when you are too sick to work?

What you do when you are too sick to work? Do you have paid sick leave? Do you take an unpaid day? Do you go to work sick? 

We’ve got a hunch, but we’d like to know for sure. That’s why we are asking thousands of British Columbians about their access to paid sick leave. Can you help?

Take the survey now. Go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/sickleavesurveynb

This information will be used to support our campaign to level the playing field for working people in BC.

Take part. We’d love to hear what you have to say.
