Legal From the Employment Standards Act
The section reads like this “(2) An employer who requires an employee to work or be available for work during a meal break must count the meal break as time worked by the employee.” So your 30 minute deduction human resources to payroll to deduct just turned into an hours pay due to you already worked 8 or more. I only sad part about this, and well there is 2 things.
- If you don’t work there any longer you can only file for the last 6 months. 5 days a week equals out to 60 hours of overtime pay. Now they will challenge it, fight and you won’t see any of your overtime pay for a while. You might even have to go to meditation.
- The second one is a little more tricky. You’re still with your company and well you want your 2 to 3 thousand dollars. Talk to them, maybe it was an honest mistake. After all we deal in WorkSafe BC law everyday and we don’t know it all. Talk to them see what they say. You will soon learn what side of the loyalty fence your company is on right then and there.
If you are owed overtime and still working for the company maybe a trade-off can be negotiated.
