The three popular articles this week on HRinfodesk deal with: An overview of how to deal with public holidays that fall on the weekends (non-working days); current and 2017 payroll rates; and proposed legislation that would amend the Occupational Health and Safety Act to provide for the establishment of employer “health and safety management systems”.
I can't believe the year 2011 is coming to an end and the holiday season is so near. Have you thought about how your organization will treat the public holidays around the end of the year? This year, Christmas, December 25, 2011, and New Year's Day, January 1, 2012, fall on Sundays. The public holiday of Boxing Day, December 26, 2011, applies in Ontario and federally regulated workplaces only, and falls on a Monday.
