Re: Ontaro Labour Law question

said by elwoodblues:

They are 11hrs shifts (of which they pay 10) at least 5 days a week.

That extra hour: is it free labour or is it an upaid break / long lunch?

They would be required to provide two meal breaks for a shift that long so I assume it would be two half hour unpaid breaks.

From what I understand, it's how you look at it, for them it's an unpaid break, but considering it's commissioned sales, taking an hour away from the floor could hurt you.

No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake.......

If that's the case I'm wondering why that's such a bad thing? There seemed to be a bit of a negative reaction to that on the first page. I've heard of some employers doing split shifts (ie 4 hours work, 4 hour break, 4 hours work) which to me is a way bigger PITA.
