Wages must be paid to workers at regular intervals of no more than 16 days or a maximum of one month in the case of managers or contract workers. In the case of a new hire, the employer has 1 month to pay the worker their first wages.
Wages may be paid :
- by cheque cashable within 2 working days
- in cash in a sealed envelope
- by bank transfer
Bonuses or overtime earned during the week preceding payment of wages may be added to the regular wages for the subsequent pay.
If pay day falls on a statutory general holiday, wages must be paid on the working day before the holiday, except where the payment is made by bank transfer.
