Updated June 5, 2021.
Available starting June 15, 2021, employers can apply to be reimbursed for up to three days of wages paid to workers for COVID-19-related sick leave.
In order to apply for the B.C. government’s COVID-19 Paid Sick-Leave Reimbursement Program, employers must sign up for WorkSafeBC’s online services.
The employer must be registered for WorkSafe BC insurance coverage. If you normally use the ‘Fast File & Pay’ function, you must take the additional step of signing up for WorkSafe BC’s online services.
This program is open to employers that do not have an existing in-house sick-leave program.
