Due to recent changes to the Canada Labour Code, federally regulated employers are now required to provide workers with written “employment statements.”
Suppose an employer knows that its employee is working overtime, but that employee did not request permission from the employer to work overtime in advance. Is the employer responsible to pay the employee, when the employee seeks compensation for the overtime worked?
Aside from some “tweaks”, not much has changed when it comes to the Ontario’s overtime rules in many years. Why then do I see so much employer non-compliance?
