As part of the ongoing Changing Workplaces Review, Ontario will be assessing its public holiday system under Part X of the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (“ESA”). Until this assessment is complete, public holiday pay will revert back to its pre-Bill 148 calculation:
(Total Employee’s Regular Wages + Vacation Pay Payable for the 4 weeks prior to the holiday) ÷ 20
This change will take effect July 1, 2018.
For more details on this change, please refer to Ontario Regulation 375/18 made under the ESA.
