(Feb. 8/16) New Brunswick is changing the requirements for the records you need to keep, as they work to reduce red tape and harmonize regional employment standards.
After the legislation has passed, the following changes will be in place:
1.You are no longer required to keep records on:
a.Living allowance amounts and other entitled payments;
b.The date an employee was suspended; and
c.The date an employee was notified of suspension.
2.You are required to keep records on the date an employee’s employment ended.
3.You are required to give your employees a way to print their electronic pay statement at your place of work.
In addition, compassionate care leaves will be extended from six to 26 weeks. This reflects changes made to the Employment Insurance program to extend compassionate care benefits.
