COVID-19 Paid Sick Leave
In May 2021, the BC government amended the Employment Standards Act to provide three days of COVID-19 paid sick leave. This new COVID-19 paid sick leave provision applies to UBC employees in certain non-unionized roles and employees who do not accrue paid sick leave. See which roles are eligible below. If you are not eligible for COVID-19 paid sick leave, use your paid sick leave to cover time off for COVID-19-related illness.
UBC’s Remote Work program provides an opportunity to consider how future work arrangements will continue to make UBC an inspiring place for students to learn and for faculty and staff to research, teach, and work.
