4 Employer Rights & Obligations
Employers did not have to pay employee’s their regular wages during the flood (unless otherwise stipulated in the Employment Agreement) Most Companies continued to pay Salary Employers could terminate employees without paying notice (con: you will be without employees) Employers can Temporarily Lay Off for 59 days. If they do not recall the employee, they must provide lieu of notice Employers should fill out Records of Employment for all staff not working You could ask Employees to work longer than 12 hours for flood related purposes (all OT pay must be paid) You could ask employees to work at an alternative location Check out Service Canada for more questions:
