Holiday Pay for a Worker Whose Status Has Changed

If you rehire a Seasonal Employee as a Casual Employee, do you need to pay statutory holiday pay after hired as a Casual?


We had a Seasonal Employee work full-time April to September 30th and was then laid off. She was rehired as a Casual and worked 4 hours on October 10th. Does she receive statutory holiday pay for October 8th based on the previous 4 weeks or is she considered a new hire with no service since being hired as Casual?

Employer Has Discretion
by: Best Business Payroll

According to the US Department of Labor, "The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) does not require payment for time not worked, such as vacations, sick leave or holidays (federal or otherwise). These benefits are a matter of agreement between an employer and an employee (or the employee's representative)."

As the employer, you may determine eligibility for your employee.
