Human Resources Legislative Update
New Holiday Pay Provisions Now in Effect
Date: March 16, 2015
As we reported in our January 2015 FTR Now, significant reforms to the general holiday pay provisions of Part III of the Canada Labour Code come into force effective March 16, 2015. Federally regulated employers are reminded that the amendments include the introduction of a new “holiday pay” formula and the elimination of certain qualifying requirements.
Please read our FTR Now for a more detailed discussion of these changes.
