Statutory Pay Update

Please verify with your bookkeeper that the July 1st statutory pay is included in employee’s pay schedule if they qualify*. Page 12 of the HR FAQs (attached) outlines more specific details. Further, even though EAs are on a Temporary Lay Off for July and August, the statutory period covers work prior to the statutory holiday and is seen as a benefit.

*Entitlement to Statutory Holidays: to qualify for statutory holiday pay employees must have been employed for at least 30 days and entitlement to statutory holidays depends on days worked prior to the holiday being 15 of the last 30 calendar days. Statutory Holiday Pay: the employer is required to pay an employee statutory holiday pay using the following formula (total wages for a 30 day period, including vacation time if taken, no overtime divided by the number of days worked during the 30-day period.
