Changes could be coming to three areas of employment standards in New Brunswick. The province’s Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour is reviewing minimum wage, youth employment and coverage under the Employment Standards Act.

In early September, the department released three discussion papers on the topics and asked for feedback by Oct. 7.

While the date for commenting has passed, the proposals put forward in the papers provide insight into possible amendments the government may table in coming months.
