Alberta`s Employment Standards Code requires employers to pay employees for all overtime worked. However, if a financing agreement is concluded, the rules for calculating overtime pay change. If a collective agreement provides for something else, the obligation to move from one position to another must be consistent with the collective agreement. An employer must notify each worker concerned in writing 2 weeks before the start of the funding agreement, unless both parties agree otherwise. During or at the end of an average period, an employer may, with a period of at least 2 weeks, address each worker concerned in writing: the average agreement may lay down only one work plan applicable to the worker. The average working time may be achieved between a single employee or group of workers and his employer. Overtime hours calculated on a daily and average basis. Overtime must be paid for longer working hours: under average agreements, employers can provide for an employee to work longer hours each day, paid at the worker`s normal wage. Existing average value agreements remain valid until the earliest: a group HWAA may be concluded at the request of a group of employees or a deputy head, with the agreement of the conclusion of the agreement, at the majority of the staff concerned. In the case of a group agreement, all new employees recruited in the workplace are considered consent and are bound by the agreement. In the absence of a collective agreement, the formation of the average value must meet all of the following criteria: until now, compressed weekly plans were available in the form of a financing agreement. This agreement allowed employees to work fewer days during the week and more than 8 hours on their workdays, without this being considered overtime.
An HWAA can be requested by the employee or employer, while an FAA can only be requested from the employee. The agreement can only set a schedule for the employee and must be made available to him in advance. In addition, a funding period must be set. Its length is determined by the nature of the funding agreement. A worker is entitled to overtime under an average agreement if his working time is exceeded: the exemption must be taken before the end of the next average period. If this is not the case, the employer must pay the worker his normal wage for the hours not taken. if, before the end of the funding period, the funding agreement is as follows: (a) ten consecutive days after the end of the pay period during which the employment relationship ends; or HWAA require a written agreement with specific conditions, including a work plan that indicates all working days and the number of hours to be worked during each of those working days during the average period. Unlike FAAs, all new staff members recruited into the group after the HWAA are considered subject to approval and subject to the conditions of the HWAA. We help employers comply with the law by understanding how to properly pay employees for overtime.

Workers who work under an HWAA are entitled to occasional sick leave for each year of employment as follows: an average agreement is an agreement between an employee and an employer that allows the worker to work on a modified schedule. It also benefits the employer by meditating on an employee`s hours over several weeks, which can exempt the employer from paying overtime. Agreements may apply to a staff member or group. Currently, workers receive their final allowance within three or ten consecutive days (in the absence of proper dismissal) after the last day of employment. Bill 32 also extends the length of average periods up to 52 weeks. An extension of the agreement beyond 52 weeks is subject to approval by the Director of Employment Standards. The calculation of flexible time depends on the fact that overtime is due on average. . .
