Remembrance Day Holiday

Hi there,

I know that if a stat holiday falls on a weekend that is not a regular work day for you, you are entitled to one day off with pay the following work day.

But what if Saturday wasn’t a regular work day for me and I ended up having to work, am I still entitled to a day off with pay?

    If you worked the business day prior to and the business day after, you are entitled to collect over time. However, if there was a policy/memo/agreement to work that day in exchange for a day in lieu of then that is what you are entitled to. But if you are not employed with this company before getting the day in lieu then you are entitled to collect that time worked at the overtime rate on your last paycheque.

    You would receive time and a half for working that day. Or there is a day in lieu of. This all changes in January however…

  5. If a stat holiday is on a Saturday and you do not regularly work Saturdays, you do not get stay holiday pay and you don’t get a day off in leiu (unless your employer chooses)

    If you work a stat holiday, you get paid time and a half.

    It’s all on the government of Alberta website.

  6. Where my husband works the company closed up the shop they didn’t get paid for the day and didn’t get Friday or Monday off

  7. Not all companies recognize Remembrance Day as a stat holiday. I know that we didn’t get the day off or stat pay for it at all, and we get the majority of stats off, so you’d have to check with your company itself to see.

      Its a stat holiday so all companies must recognize it as so. But if it falls on a weekend and you dont work weekends, well youre screwed lol

    • Not true at all. It’s not law that it must be recognized as a stat. Some companies give Boxing Day instead of Remembrance Day. It’s not mandatory for companies to recognize Remembrance Day as a statutory holiday and/or pay as such.

    • Crystal Whitaker that is incorrect

    • Laura Brown Laura Brown says:

      It actually is a recognized stat. Many employers have their staff work that day and then give them a day off in lieu over Christmas (for example, Boxing Day), but it IS a stat. For everyone. The only time an employer does not need to pay their staff for the day is if it falls on a day that is not normally a work day.

    • lol the only reason I know this to be untrue is that the company I work for actually closes on 99% of stat holidays, which is EXTREMELY uncommon in the industry, and we do not close or pay stat pay on Remembrance Day. But Saturdays are a regular work day for most of the employees and we’re not paid stat pay, but we do get Boxing Day at time and a half, or off with pay.

      Remembrance Day is a stat holiday… As per the Alberta government website. There are 3 optional stats but Remembrance Day is not one of them.

    • Then your company is screwing you unless you get an extra day at Xmas in lieu of it. But rememberance day is a stat

    • Crystal Whitaker Boxing Day is stat also. So not sure where you getting your information from but rememberance day is a stat

    • That is illegal to do. What company is this?

    • Dianne Machado, Boxing Day is an optional stat. It isn’t one that is required by law to be given.
      All I was trying to do was tell this person to check with their company as maybe they had the same thing going on as I did lmao didn’t need people getting all pissy!! So long as someone is given a day in lieu somewhere for it, that’s all that matters

    • Lisha Lynn that is Alberta General Holidays, it doesn’t say Stat holiday. My office personnel checked with the labour board and was advised if remembrance day falls on a weekend, then a business is not required to give a day in lieu as it is not a federal stat holiday, rather a recognized day. Just like not all provinces get family day.

    • According to Federal payroll legislation in Canada, these are the federally mandated stat holidays. Remembrance day is a federal and Alberta stat holiday. You must get a day in lieu or time and a half depending on your usually scheduled days of work. In Alberta, boxing day is only a stat if you work for a federal business such as the government itself or some banks. Otherwise, it can be given in lieu.

      You realize that you have been wrong on everything you’ve said so far Crystal. Your company is screwing you!

    • lol I said that we get Boxing Day in lieu…..Boxing Day isn’t a stat, and all employees either get paid time and a half if they work that day or get the day off with pay, so not quite sure how or why I’m getting screwed, but thanks!!

    • If you are in a federally regulated industry (rail, airline, media, telecom) you would follow national guidelines and they trump provincial regulations. My company opts for us to have Heritage day in August not Remembrance Day

      [0]
    • Exactly. We get family day instead of the August stay, and Boxing Day in lieu of Remembrance Day, so it all works out in the end.
      Not sure why I got jumped all over. I guess I may have worded it a bit poorly, but in the end, this is what I was trying to say lol

  8. Jaime Sharon Jaime Sharon says:

    Youre actually not entitled to a day in lieu if the holiday is on a day you dont usually work. I didnt get a day in lieu. If you worked the stat, you are entitled to 1.5 x your regular pay.

  9. Carmen Shaw Carmen Shaw says:

    The only time the stat moves is if Canada day is on a Sunday. Otherwise, if you worked 5 of the last 9 Saturdays you would get stat hours for the average. If you worked Saturday, you would also get 1.5 times your rate for those hours.

    People arguing like they all work for the same company. Maybe check your employer’s HR Manual ?

    • It isn’t up to HR. There are provincial laws about this stuff

      Weird. My husbands company allowed them to take the day off work or take a day off in leiu. My friend was required to work Monday and another friend wasn’t given the option for a day off in leiu. She just didnt work that day as her company was closed.

    • Your husband’s company went over and above. The other 2 followed the law.

    • Sly Beaudry Sly Beaudry says:

      Sharie, you missed my point. Between myself, my brother and my sister-in-law, we all have three different HR policies in place on how stats are observed. Reading up on those HR documents that you signed without understanding what you were reading should be step 1.

    This is right on the ALBERTA LABOUR STANDARDS website… just Google Alberta labour standards and an entire website dedicated to this info comes up. I know people are confused as I was too when I first ever worked for a company that didn’t give a lieu day for a stat on a weekend/non work day (I no longer work for this company lol.) But simply put because your already off work if u r not scheduled for work on the stat that lands on a weekend/your day off means you already had the day off, so in AB companies don’t have to give an extra day off if it’s already a non-scheduled work day for you. However majority of companies give a lieu day even though they don’t have to
