Recently there has been some changes introduced to legislature that will affect all business as a whole. We are looking at changes to:
Youth minimum wage: being moved to $13.00/hour on June 26th. The idea behind this to to encourage hiring of younger people to help them gain experience in the workforce.
Banked overtime: being brought back to an hour for an hour and if unused in 6 months then employer is paid out at time and a half.
Holiday Pay: an employee must work 30 days prior to being eligible to holiday pay. Also you are only entitled to holiday pay on the days you are normally scheduled to work.
These changed of course affect both businesses as well as employees and we want to know your thoughts on the changes. Do you agree or disagree? Do you think these changes will have a long lasting positive or negative impact? What changes would you like to see happen?
