I work long hours, how does overtime work?
Depending on what province you are in, there are different rules surrounding overtime pay.
In British Columbia, anything over 8 hours a day or 40 hours per week (whichever comes first) is considered overtime which is paid out at time and a half. Anything over 12 hours a day is entitled to double time. If you'd like to learn more, please visit the government website concerning overtime rules in BC.
In Alberta, nannies are considered domestic workers and are not eligible for overtime. To learn more, please visit this link: Overtime in Alberta - Domestic employees
In Ontario, anything over 44 hours per week is considered overtime, and must be paid out at time and a half. To learn more, please visit the government website regarding overtime rules in Ontario.
We are also willing to discuss averaging agreements, which allow some flexibility regarding long hours in one week and short hours in another week.
