Statutory Holidays: Ensuring Compliance

Payroll practitioners have a big responsibility in transforming legislation into organizational policy. Given that there are so many aspects of employment and labour standards legislation and regulation that are multifaceted, this can be a challenge. The webinar will cover the federal, provincial and territorial legislation related to statutory holidays for all jurisdictions across Canada and will examine the following issues: Statutory holiday observance; employee entitlement; statutory holiday pay requirements for eligible employees; overtime calculation in weeks where there is a statutory holiday and much more.
