How are statutory holidays supposed to be handled?

The following are statutory public holidays in Ontario, New Years Day, Family Day, Good Friday, Victoria Day, Canada Day, Labour Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Boxing Day. Please note that the Civic Holiday, August 1, is not a statutory holiday.

If your employee works any statutory holiday they are entitled to either premium pay, which must be at least 1 times their regular pay, plus their public holiday or 1 times their regular pay plus a day off with pay. Full time employees are entitled to the day off with pay. Part time employees are to be paid an amount equal to the total amount of wages (including vacation pay) earned in the four weeks before the public holiday divided by 20. For example, if your part time employee worked two 5 hour shifts in the four weeks preceeding Labor Day they would receive 1/2 hour public holiday pay.

Remember that hours paid for the statutory holiday do not create an overtime situation.

Remember that the employee must work their regular scheduled shifts before and after the statutory holiday in order to be paid for the holiday.
