Employment Standards Act – Vacation - Most of the employees covered by the employment standards act earn two weeks of paid vacation for every twelve months they work. This is called the vacation entitlement year. - The standard vacation entitlement year starts the day an employee is hired and lasts twelve months. - Another possibility is an alternative vacation entitlement year. This may not start the same day an employee is hired. The time between the two start times is called the stub period. - Employees can also earn vacation time during the stub period. - Vacation pay must be at least four percent of the employees gross wages earned in the vacation entitlement year and possibly the stub period. - It is possible that an employee can earn more than four percent vacation pay if their contract agreement states a higher pay rate. - The right to vacation pay is earned even when an employee is away from work due to layoff, sickness or injury, approved leaves, or declared emergency leaves. -
