In Canada, the following must be adhered to under strict local legislation:
Canadian regulations state employers must pay employees regularly. However, it is up to the employer whether they choose to pay on a weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly or monthly basis.
Employers with staff between the ages 18-70 are obliged to contribute to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) or, for those based in Quebec, the Quebec Pension Plan (QPP).
The typical working week in Canada is 40 hours, with the exception of a few provinces which supply 48-hour working weeks. Subject to job role, all hours in excess would be classified as overtime and must carry an increase in remuneration.
Employers must provide notice to all employees; exact timeframes vary by province. Severance pay is not mandatory but is required in certain provinces. Speak with one of our specialists to ensure you adhere to labor law.
