(June 24/15) The provincial government has made positive changes to the New Brunswick Drug Plan. This means:
- the provincial drug plan is no longer mandatory;
- restaurant employers won’t have to change their current plans to match the provincial drug listings; and
- employer contributions are not required as the plan is voluntary.
We’re pleased the government is making a stronger commitment to us and the business community to protect employers from a new drug plan payroll tax. Since this drug plan was proposed more than two years ago, we’ve fought to protect our members from extra costs. Read more about our action.
