Payroll Operations has several important reminders to share as you prepare for hiring and rehiring this September.

Increase to Minimum Wage
Alberta’s minimum wage will increase from $9.40 to 9.75 per hour on September 1, 2012.

Auxiliary and Regular Support Staff and Winter Closure
To be paid for winter closure, auxiliary and regular support staff need to work their last normal working day prior to the winter closure and their first normal working day after the closure. If an auxiliary or regular support staff has an end date of December 31st, they are not eligible to be paid for winter closure.
