There may be some confusion regarding the upcoming stat holiday, Family Day.
In BC, this holiday falls on Monday, February 10th.
In Alberta, this holiday falls on Monday, February 17th.
Some of you may have observed that various calendars (printed and online versions) only show the Alberta date.
Keep in mind that if you have employees working on a stat, they are generally entitled to:
“An eligible employee who works on a statutory holiday is entitled to be paid:
- time-and-a-half for the first 12 hours worked and double-time for any work over 12 hours; plus
- an average day’s pay.”
