Working on Canada Day, Victoria Day and Easter

Discussion in 'Settlement Issues' started by Clorets90, May 25, 2019.

  1. Hello everyone,

    As a newcomer I don't know too much here so I worked on holiday days is that fine or against law in Canada?

    What I should do or what is required from me to do next time ?
    Or it's fine and I would get more if I work on holidays ?

    What if I worked on holiday and on payroll shows (I didn't work) and already paid me but now my employer is says I will pay you on next check ?

    Please I need some clarifications.

    Thanks everyone.
     
  2. well depending on what province you live the rules change just a little bit but in all province you get paid when you work holiday. Just google it Stat Pay and the province.

    for the next question maybe your employer will pay you on the next pay cheque because of your pay cycle..... if you dont see your holiday pay then talk to your payroll department and they should correct it.

    BC Time + 1/2 for the first 12 hours, Double time after that plus an additional day off with pay
    Alberta Time + 1/2 plus an average day’s wages plus a holiday day with pay

  3. Thank you very much!
    So there is no legal issue if I worked on a national holiday right?
    Only the employer must pay me 1 and half and must contact the payroll department dor correction.

  7. Depending on your contract and province you may not qualify for time and a half. You continue to have the most random questions. If you were worried about working on a holiday shouldn’t you have asked the question before the holiday?

  8. I don't have any contracts with the current company...
    I'm new here so many random question are facing me they are not same as my previous life experience so I ask here and I get very good answers from you "I really love that"
    All my concerns are I don't want to have legal issues not about money the employer mentioned he will pay me but he can't correct the previous paystub or payroll! I don't know why he said I can give you seperate payment.
    That's I'm worried could you make it clearer please if you have time and experience.
    Thank you so much.
    Thanks
     
  9. Also my employer told me that he showed that I didn't work I took a day off on Holiday! But I was working on that day Instead of correction he is asking me to accept if he pay me separately...
    I told him I want to correct it he mentioned he can't instead he will pay me separately as a commission....

    Please tell me what should I do.

    Thanks everyone.
     
  10. The employer cannot correct the previous stub they can only pay you on the upcoming one.
     
  11. well now that i cannot help with as i have no-idea what your Log in system is how do they check the days you work,

    what time you arrive
    what time you take breaks / Lunches.
    what days you dont actually work.


    that you have to work out with your boss how does he know you did not work and how can you prove you worked and also for the hours you claim.

    and also why on earth don't you have a contract or offer letter or something in writing ?

    All the best

  12. Thanks
    I'm sorry about all this the issue is solved (the employer forgotten that he paid me till 18th of May last payment)
    So he is going to mention this on the next Paystub.......

    I don't have this because I was looking for work he said okay come work next week as a test then we can see your skills and I will hire you!

    I don't know even if this should be mentioned no one said this like letter or offer.
    I don't know if this affect if I'm Permanent Resident.
    If you could explain this in more detail please.
    Thanks
     

  13. No it should not affect you just wanted to know for your own benefits you don’t know the rules and terms of your employment but you work and get paid and you’re okay I’m sure you’ll be fine i just know everywhere I’ve worked I’ve gotten a offer letter which outline everything. About the company my role what grounds they can fire me on late policy sick policy vacation policy how much I’m getting paid etc and the list goes on but again this should not affect your pr when you apply for pr ad you as for a job letter then the company if they even remember when you start will write that ou are employed and when you start if its full time part time etc
     
  14. Example of a offer letter this is mine. ive removed all important info about me or my company.
