The Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2, the Royal Approval of December 14, 2017 and the Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2, which received royal approval on December 13, 2018, contain provisions amending Part III (Labour Standards) of the Canadian Labour Code (code) to introduce a new right for workers, request flexible work arrangements, new leave and other new measures to make the workplace more flexible. General leave: With the change in the code that allows employers to replace each other day with a general leave, the employer is obliged to keep any written agreement with an employee for the replacement of a general leave. Not necessarily. Overtime must be paid for on the basis of the authorized weekly or daily hours. If the schedule .B applies to a compressed work week consisting of 4 days to 10 hours, overtime is payable after 10 hours per day and 40 hours per week. Overtime must also be paid after an average of 40 hours for a week when the schedule is 2 weeks or more. Flexible work arrangements are changes in a worker`s employment conditions. This allows them to get a better job and balance the house. For each work week: (the number of hours on a work day and a work week can be indicated by adding the work plan of the employee or staff involved.) In some situations, workstations may need an hourly permit, not a change in the work order.
An authorization is subject to approval by the Director of Employment Standards. A modified work order is not. Currently, compliance with Part III of the Code is achieved through a multitude of approaches, including education and counselling, investigation of complaints, workplace inspections, wage recovery and decision on unpaid wages, unfair dismissal and complaints about genetic discrimination. Rights and safeguards aimed at promoting work-life balance can benefit both workers and employers: changes in working hours: the code allows for the application of modified hours, including those where hours exceed the maximum working time set by the code, to individual workers and not just to categories of workers. Employers should review these modified labour standards based on their current policies and collective agreements to ensure they are in compliance by September 1, 2019. A modified employment agreement (MWA) is an agreement between the employer and an employee or a group of workers to ensure that the working time is on average too average. The MWA must determine when overtime applies, but overtime does not exceed 12 hours of work over a 24-hour period. Standard weekly hours (normally 40) should be reduced by 8 hours per leave. Therefore, overtime after 32 hours would apply within a week off.
In calculating the overtime entitle, no time worked on a public holiday is counted. (See publication 4 on salary requirements for hours worked on leave.) Personal leave: After three consecutive months of uninterrupted employment, workers are entitled to a new personal leave of up to five days per calendar year, including three days with pay. The employer may request supporting documents no later than 15 days after a worker returns to work and the worker must, if reasonably feasible, provide supporting documentation. This leave can be taken: overtime pay or rest time: with the change in the code that allows employees to take leave rather than pay overtime, the employer is required to put in place a written agreement between the employer and the employee to replace a break instead of overtime pay.
