Processing Holiday Pay
By default, employees in this group will be paid for the public holiday based on the Employment Standards Act entitlements (this depends on number of hours worked prior to the public holiday).
When entering information in eHR, the employee/manager should not enter hours for the public holiday, unless the employee actually worked that day. If an employee works on the public holiday, these hours should be entered as overtime at the rate of 1.5 times their regular hourly rate. The employee will be paid public holiday pay consistent with the Employment Standards Act, plus the hours entered as overtime.
Processing TMU Day
NOTE: This process is different than entering hours for public holidays.
The closure falls during the employee’s regular schedule, but they do not work:
The manager/department must pay them for the hours for which they are scheduled. The employee/manager must enter the employee’s regularly scheduled hours on the electronic time sheet at regular rate. The employee will be paid their regularly scheduled hours at regular rate.
The closure day is not part of their regular schedule:
The manager/department should not pay the employee. The employee/manager should NOT enter hours. The employee will not be paid.
The closure is part of the employee’s regular schedule and they DO work:
The employee should be paid for TMU Day, in addition to payment for the work performed on this day. The employee/manager must enter on the time sheet the regularly scheduled hours at regular rate, plus enter an additional row on the time sheet indicating the number of hours actually worked as overtime at 1.5 times their regular hourly rate. The employee will be paid their regularly scheduled hours at regular rate, PLUS the hours worked on TMU Day at 1.5 times their regular rate.
