Hour Averaging Agreement

A worker is entitled to statutory leave pay if he or she has worked 30 calendar days and has worked under an average agreement in the 30 days preceding the statutory holiday. Joseph`s standard hours are reduced by 32 hours for the period. Like Mary, Joseph`s vacation and mourning hours would be reduced by 4 p.m. Joseph does not receive a basic salary and therefore no normal salary applies, paragraph 6(7)(e) applies. The hours are reduced by 8 hours for the day Joseph was not to come for lack of work and for the day he was sick. These two days were normally working days, but he was not entitled to regular wages. Such cases are rare, as most employers who have scheduled workers do not normally have scheduled working hours, which vary and are therefore not eligible for the endowment. The need for an irregular distribution of hours is usually due to external factors over which a company has little or no influence, most often on climatic and seasonal requirements. An example is working with long hours during the summer season to perform repairs to devices that cannot be done easily during the winter months. In the event of dismissal or termination of employment by the employer, the worker is entitled to overtime pay for all hours worked exceeding 40 times the number of weeks in the completed part of the average period. If a collective agreement provides for something else, the obligation to move from one position to another must be consistent with the collective agreement.

Example 2: a four-week schedule for an employee who works an average of 40 hours per week and who is on average unemployed two days a week  the number of times that can be repeated during the duration of the agreement, and in this situation an average would not be allowed, because the number of hours planned is not different from time to time. The number of hours scheduled is eight hours per working day and 40 hours per week. The number of hours actually worked varies from day to day and from week to week, but this does not change the fact that the process does not meet the funding criteria. One of the few provisions of the B.C. Employment Standards Act that employers consider to be to their advantage is the determination of average overtime (section 37). Essentially, averaging overtime allows employers to schedule employees for non-standard positions, without having to pay them at overtime rates (an hour and a half or two). Workers in heavy construction and in industrial, industrial and institutional construction cannot have their standard working hours changed by an average permit or agreement. These employees have standard working hours specific to their sector and season. For more information, see the factsheet on the construction industry. If a worker works more than the maximum daily, weekly and cyclical working time, he is entitled to overtime pay. . .
