- Ensure careful consideration is given when developing rules and regulation regarding domestic violence and mental health and work with both employees and employers when developing the process, by having another consultation;
- Do not introduce changes to the program that eliminate or even surpass the current surplus so that the premiums paid by employers increase;
- And more...
