Employers who wish to have a working relationship may temporarily dismiss an employee. During or at the end of a programming period, an employer may, with a written communication of at least two weeks addressed to each worker concerned, enter into a funding agreement allowing the worker to work a modified schedule. It also benefits the employer by giving an average worker`s hours of work for several weeks, which may exempt the employer from overtime pay. Agreements may apply to a staff member or group. (a) ten consecutive days after the end of the pay period during which the termination of the employment relationship takes place; Or we help employers comply with the law by understanding how employees can be properly paid for overtime.

If there is no collective agreement, the funding agreement must meet all the following criteria: if the overtime of the average is due, some additional calculations are necessary. These calculations ensure that hours are not counted twice as much as average overtime and flexible time. The calculation is as follows: Previously, compressed weekly working agreements were available as an average agreement option. These regulations allowed workers to work fewer days during the week and more than 8 hours on their working days, without this being considered overtime. b) 31 consecutive days after the last business day. Effective September 1, 2019, the latest changes to Alberta`s Labour Standards Code (legislation imposing minimum standards for employment in provincially regulated businesses) and its regulations will remove Flexible Means Agreements (FAAs): flexible planning regimes put in place by the previous NDP government under the Fair and Family Friendly Workplaces Act.C is over.
Alberta`s Employment Standards Code requires employers to pay employees for all overtime worked. However, when a funding agreement is established, the rules for calculating overtime pay change. The employer and employees can renegotiate or terminate the person or group (if the majority approves) HWAA at any time. Any party to HWAA may terminate the contract with a 30-day period. The termination will take effect at the end of the 30-day period, which in some cases may be longer than 30 days. However, only one staff member cannot leave a HWAA group. The employer may also change the schedule if the average agreement stipulates that the leave period must be taken before the next funding period expires. If this is not the case, the employer must pay the worker his regular wage for hours not worked. A HWAA may be requested by the employee or employer, while an FAA can only be requested by the employee.
The agreement only has to indicate a timetable for the employee to follow and it must be made available to them in advance. In addition, a period of intervention must be established. Its length is determined by the nature of the funding agreement. Overtime due is the highest daily or average overtime. As a result, employers must deduct all of the daily overtime paid to workers from the average time owed to determine whether overtime is due at the end of the median period. An employer must notify any affected worker before the start of the funding agreement, two weeks after written notice, unless both parties agree otherwise.
