"To Pay Vacation Pay, Or Not Pay Vacation Pay: That Is The Question "

Two lawyers at McMillan - Paul Boshyk and George Waggott - have written an article for the firm's January 2014 labour and employment bulletin, "To Pay Vacation Pay, Or Not Pay Vacation Pay: That Is The Question".

The article addresses the obligation to compensate a dismissed employee for vacation pay over the notice period. The authors focus on the following Ontario cases:

  • Cronk v Canadian General Insurance Co., (1995), 25 OR (3d) 505 (ONCA) 
  • Garvin v Rockwell International of Canada Ltd., 1993 CarswellOnt 966 (Ct J (GD)) 
  • Emery v Royal Oak Mines Inc., 1995 CarswellOnt 456 (Ct J (GD))
