Holiday Pay

Effective January 1, 2018 Employment Standards changed on how Holiday Pay is calculated for Excluded Students and Academic Hourly employees. General Holiday pay is currently being administered by Central HR and requires no action from the department at this time. If an employee works on the holiday, you will need to pay these hours at 1.5 X overtime (TRC 615) when entering the time.

This change does not impact NASA support staff. Hourly staff already receive holiday pay based on all hour worked and is included on each pay cheque. If a NASA staff member does not work, please DO NOT enter any time (the field should remain blank). If an employee does work, please refer to the NASA Collective Agreement or the Holiday Pay web page.
