Anyone work retail in Ontario?!
 
Ok my boss just told me we don't get time and a half for working on Boxing Day and I am pretty darn sure that we should because I am pretty darn sure it's like the law or something!!! Lol does anyone else work in retail in ontario and know the rules!? I'm gonna call the labour board and find out I guess....

I have always gotten time and a half. This link agrees with you. http://www.workrights.ca/content.php?doc=16

They can also just pay you your regular pay and give you another day off (with pay) instead.

It's a stat holiday https://www.labour.gov.on.ca/english...icholidays.php

Basically you're supposed to get paid for the holiday so if you usually work 8 hours get get paid for 8 hours plus you're supposed to get time and a half for any actual hours worked.

Thanks everyone. I am not impressed. I guess I'm going to have to confront my boss and discuss it with her because I'm either getting paid or staying home! Lol

Do you work for a large retailer that has a corporate office, if so I suggest calling HR? Your boss just may not know what they are talking about.

I was curious how holiday pay worked in Canada so I read the link. It does state that some salesperson positions are exempt from the Holiday pay. Actually, there are a lot of exceptions. I would ask someone who worked there last year how it was handled.

We too get paid time and a half on Boxing Day. Major Food retailer.

My company is young, only been around since 2009 and this store is brand new so nobody was around last year. But retail workers are eligible for holiday pay, they just don't make the laws very reader-friendly. Anyways I'm gonna call the labour board help line and find out 100% what the deal is and then bring it up at work.
