In this case, the leave must be taken within three weeks before or after that date, unless a collective agreement or decree provides for a longer period. There is a need to communicate a national approach to the management of resource training. Ontario employees earn 1.5 times their base salary when they work more than 44 hours per week. As in British Columbia, funding agreements can affect how overtime is paid. And as in Manitoba, employees who work on the commission or who do piecework calculate the overtime rate based on their average rate of pay. • Leave may be taken in lieu of overtime pay if there is a written agreement between you and the employer. If the worker has already received overtime pay for hours during the average period, these hours are not taken into account in determining the overtime to be paid to the worker at the end of the employment relationship. In order to integrate that worker during the funding period, the employer must refer to subsection 6(7)(e), which requires that the standard and maximum working time of each day during an average period for which the worker is normally a working day for which the worker is not entitled to regular wages: reduce by eight hours. Subsection 8 (e) limits the weekly discount to 40 hours. Therefore, the hours of a worker who starts working at the beginning of the 11th week of an average period of 16 weeks would be reduced by 400 hours (10 × 40) for the period before the start of the employment relationship.
• The rules allow for the establishment of modified agreements and working hours when there is a collective agreement or, if there is none, 70% of workers must give their consent. Such agreements can extend working time to 48 hours per week. 9 During an average period, working hours may be provided for and actually carried out, without taking account of Article 173 of the Law. Any work performed in addition to the ordinary work week includes a bonus of 50% of the current hourly wage paid to the worker. The employer may, at the request of the worker or in the cases provided for in a collective agreement or decree, replace the payment of overtime by compensatory rest corresponding to overtime worked plus 50%. For the calculation of overtime, annual leave and statutory general leave are taken into account as working days. • Funding agreements may change overtime payment requirements. You may have a written agreement with your employer – which must be approved by the Director of Employment Standards – to average your hours over a period of two weeks or more. (For example, if you average your hours over a four-week period, you would only be entitled to overtime after 176 hours.) As of January 1, 2019, a worker is entitled to two weeks of leave after one year of service and 3 weeks of paid leave after 3 years of continuous service [instead of the current standard of three weeks of leave after 5 years of service]. Annual leave must be taken within twelve months of the end of the reference year, unless a collective agreement or regulation authorizes a postponement to the following year. . .
