Averaging Agreements British Columbia


A financing contract must be signed by the employer and the employee before the start date. It must also include: (8) Section 36, paragraph 1, applies to a funding agreement when the period specified in the agreement is one week. (9) Where the period indicated in a funding agreement is more than one week, the employer must retain a funding agreement (13) for four years under the following conditions: One of the few provisions of the B.C. Employment Standards Act, which employers consider to be in their favour, is the average overtime (section 37). For the most part, the overtime rate allows employers to plan work in atypical shifts without having to pay them for overtime (half-year or double time and rates). Example: 2 to 4 weeks of staff is scheduled 120 hours over an average period of 3 weeks (the maximum time that can be scheduled on a 3-week schedule; 3 weeks X 40 hours – 120), but works an extra day for a total of 125 hours. The 5 hours are calculated in weekly overtime with 1.5 X of normal salary. However, overtime provisions are not adapted to work plans that are inconsistent or that indicate random early hours. Simply put, the overtime rate does not eliminate overtime pay and does not protect employers who sporadically request an employee to work a longer day or a longer week. Where a worker is excluded by the Regulations of the Act and the regulations set overtime requirements to replace those listed on page 40, employers and workers can nevertheless enter into a funding agreement for the s.37. In this case, s.37 of the law prevails over overtime requirements in the regulation of employment standards. (b) worked at any time during this 30 calendar-day period as part of a Section 37 funding agreement.

Although there is no mandatory format for an overtime credit agreement (and the agreement does not have to be submitted to the employment industry), some requirements must be met. In the agreement, there are… Workers who work under a funding agreement and work over a one-week period must receive at least 32 consecutive hours of work each week. However, there are some very sensitive points in BC employment standards that employers need to consider, which could reduce the attractiveness of average agreements. If the employer freely has hours of work, these hours can be scheduled at any time during the median period. This means that they can be planned weekly or can be planned at any time during the median period. i. The agreement must be written. Oral agreements are not valid (see example 1 below). Thanks for sharing. I also read your article “How Stat Vacation Affects Overtime” and it helps us a lot.

Dig down. Please, could you help determine whether, under the medium-term agreement, workers also comply with the following rules: a. The weekly overtime threshold of 40 hours (on average) does not change when there is a statutory holiday; B. Legal holidays themselves are not considered hours of work for daily or weekly overtime in BC; c. The work of a statutory holiday does not count towards daily overtime (they are already paid for overtime); d. For weekly overtime, only the first 8 hours (12 hours, I think in the case of an average agreement) worked during a day count; E. The work of a statutory holiday counts for weekly overtime when those hours fall within the 40 hours used to determine weekly overtime. But working on a statutory holiday is not overtime. In other words, you do not pay a bonus and a half for work on statutory leave and you set the same hours as overtime. It would be a double immersion; Thank you very much and we look forward to your cordial
