How does Payroll in Canada work?
Canada Working Hours
Employees who are subject to federal regulations are all entitled to one full day of rest each week, which usually falls on a Sunday. Generally, the maximum number of hours which can be worked in a week is 48. There are some circumstances whereby this threshold can be exceeded for example; emergency work, under an averaging plan or a modified work schedule.
Business Culture in Canada
Canada is comprised of ten provinces plus three territories, as well having a mix of British, French and American influences.
Employment regulations in Canada are generally governed by the provincial and territorial authorities. However the federal government has jurisdiction over employers that are engaged in activities that are interprovincial in nature (federally regulated).
That’s why engaging with a knowledgeable employer of record in Canada is your best way of reducing any risk associated with employing in Canada.
