The employer must pay employees not less frequently than half monthly. All wages owing must be paid within 7 days of the end of the pay period.
The employer must pay the wages at the place of employment during regular working hours; or at the employee's normal residence by mail or personal delivery; or by deposit into the employee's bank account. These monies must be paid in lawful currency of Canada, or by cheque or money order, or, providing the employee is in agreement, by direct deposit into an account of a bank chosen by the employee.
In the event that a business closes while wages remain outstanding, affected employees should contact the Labour Standards Division immediately.
The employer cannot deduct these charges from wages.
No, the employer can only deduct sums established at law. Therefore, if an employee owes the employer for any of the above, the employer will have to take alternate measures to recover the sums that are owed.
