Days of In Lieu

I have a question that maybe someone can help me with! Normally, we have to work Remembrance Day but instead get Boxing Day off in lieu.

I have given my notice, and will not be employed with the company during Boxing Day.

ANOTHER GREAT POST:  Question Regarding the Furnace in our House

Does this mean I’m entitled to the stat for Remembrance Day, as I will not be here for the day we get off in lieu?

  2. Is a “day off in lieu” not the Friday before or Monday after??? How can a company switch one holiday for another holiday and call it “in lieu”?

  3. If you’re not employed come Boxing Day no you will not get paid for it. They switched the day they are paying ppl to have off. You’re not employed so your not entitled it.

    • I think they might have to pay out hoilday/stat pay once she is done. Remeberance day is now a stat and everyone is entitled to it some how. If you have to work it they have to bank the hours.. when she quits… they have to pay her out 1.5 times.

      Rememberance day is not a paid day off unless you are normally scheduled to work the day that it falls on. If they work monday-friday, they are not entitled to a day off with pay.

    According to the alberta labour laws.

    If you do not normally work Saturday, you will not.

    only if you were originally sched to work rememberance day and if your last day is that day or the one after, are you entitled to pay that day, depending on the policy of the company you work for, diff businesses fall under diff regulations. strongly doubt in your case that boxing day would count lol

    If a statutory holiday falls on a day you dont normally work, you are not entitled to a day off with pay the following work day unless you have an employment contract that states otherwise. For anyone saying im wrong, please check the work alberta website. Boxing day is also not a statutory holiday for anyone outside federal offices (government, banks, etc).

      Unless the stat falls on the weekend.

      It doesnt matter if it falls on a weekend if the weekend is a day not normally worked. If you dont work saturday, youre not entitled to a day off. Most companies give it, but they dont have to.

    • Kim Schindel Kim Schindel says:

      You are correct Kari. Aimee Robb check the website. Kari is correct. If you don’t normally work a Saturday your employer does not have to give you a weekday off

      I honestly didnt know this until recently because every company id ever worked for always gave it off. I didnt know that they had an option.

      Kari is right… it’s on the Alberta labour standards website. I learnt this at my previous job as they were the first company i worked for ever who didn’t give a lieu day for a stat regardless of a weekend. Most companies give a lieu day but don’t technically have to.

      Agree. If anyone wants to check on that they need to look at “eligibility” for general holidays. Some people wouldn’t be eligible as you have stated. Among other qualifying factors for instance , one wouldn’t be eligible if their normal week didn’t include a Saturday… that’s why the code always says ELIGIBLE employees. So many people just read part of the code and take it to the bank so to speak. When you call Employment Standards for advice, they will always ask you a series of questions to determine your eligibility to begin with. Its like any legislation- lots of “ifs” , exceptions and special rules. You have to know all of it not just a piece.

      I didn’t know this until I worked for an employer who didn’t give it off. That and Canada Day can fall on a weekend. Also, the August long weekend is not a stat holiday but most employers will give it

    • The only exception to a mandatory day in lieu is canada day falling on a weekend day. This is a federal standard set that all companies must follow.

  8. Lyn Hessels Lyn Hessels says:

    From the Employment Standards Code “General holidays can be postponed to a later date. If an employee’s employment is terminated before a postponed holiday is taken, the following applies:
    If the employer terminates the employment, the employee must receive:
    an average daily wage, plus
    1.5 times the regular wage rate for all hours worked on the general holiday less any money previously paid for wages and overtime on the general holiday
    If the employee quits, they will be paid the average daily wage for each general holiday deferred and still not taken.”

  9. Remembrance Day is not a “statutory” holiday in Alberta and few other provinces. It’s a federal holiday. It’s like our heritage day. Does not have to be observed.

    Go celebrate “serve, protect and enable a jew” day; without it there would not be a bunch of fat, salivating Pavlovian kosher-pigs scrambling to over consume on boxing day.

    It’s really petty that you’re worried about the one day. Just work it like a normal adult and be done when you’re done.

    Boxing day is not in lieu of remembrance day. Remembrance day is a day to remember and some companies may give you the Friday or Monday preceding or following the 11th. As far as I know.

  13. When we looked this up at work we must have misread it. We’re not getting a day in lieu of so we thought it wasn’t.

    You are entitled to the stat pay in general. Your employer should not be making up rules as to where to apply the stat but I as long as it’s honored within the calendar year I can see how it can be overlooked. Just inform your employer that since you will not be with the company on Dec 26 that you expect your stat pay to be included in this pay period as the labor laws require. If they make a fuss, let them know you will file a report with Alberta Labor Standards if they don’t. I had to report an employer for not paying stats to the other employees. It’s amazing how fast a person gets paid once the employer gets reported!

  15. Do you normally work Saturday’s ? Then yes. If you don’t work Saturday’s Then no. It’s the companies choice whether or not they want to give you a day in lieu for this holiday as it falls on a Saturday.

  16. Boxing Day is a stat. You have been conned.
