Fact Scenario

Abdul began working for BEF Company on February 1, 2017. He was hired as a customer service representative where he processed customer complaints and entered them into a database.  Abdul was earning $880 per week, not including vacation pay.

Andrea is the general manager of BEF. On February 7, 2017, Andrea and Abdul signed an employment agreement. In the agreement, Abdul would be paid time in lieu for any overtime that he worked. It was a very busy time for BEF and Abdul worked many hours of overtime.  From February until the end of June, 2016, Abdul worked a total of 180 hours of overtime. In June, Abdul took a week off and used 40 hours of lieu time and therefore has 140 hours remaining.

On July 1, 2017, Abdul was promoted to customer service manager. In addition to keeping some of the data entry work that he previously performed, Abdul is also responsible for recording employee absences and lateness in his work area.  He reports this information to Andrea and Andrea makes the decision regarding discipline and termination.  Abdul now earns $968 per week, not including vacation pay.

According to BEF Company policy, Abdul is no longer entitled to payment of overtime or any lieu time because he is a manager.  Andrea promised to pay out Abdul’s banked overtime from his previous position over the next twelve months.

Abdul finds that the pace of work has increased. He is now working 60 hours per week on average. From July 1, 2017 to February 5, 2018, Abdul did not have any time off work. He is working seven days a week, every week. As a manager he is not paid overtime but his employer does pay him time and a half on public holidays. It is difficult to work on public holidays since his children are home; he would like to spend time with them but he needs the money and is appreciative that his company gives him more than straight time for public holidays.

It was so busy at work that Abdul could not take time off from work when he had a very high fever. He collapsed in the office and Andrea told him to rest in the sick room for the day. Andrea would have liked to have Abdul go home but she needed him at work. Thankfully, his fever subsided and he was able to work the next day.

At the beginning of December, Andrea noticed that a computer near Abdul’s workstation had been vandalized. Although Andrea could not determine who broke the computer, she had the pay of the 10 employees whose workstations are closest to the computer docked for the damage. Abdul’s pay was reduced by $150 to cover the damage.

On December 15, 2017, BEF’s main client GHI Company announced that it is no longer going to use BEF’s services. GHI’s business accounts for 40% of BEF’s sales.  Although BEF is trying to gain new customers, the loss of business has been enormous!

To avoid huge costs of terminating the employment of its employees, BEF has decided to embark on a new strategy. On January 1, 2018, it announced that, effective immediately, all company health benefits were eliminated.  In addition, all managers will have a 25% pay cut. Abdul will therefore earn only $629.20 per week.

At this point, Andrea informed Abdul that the company will no longer be paying out his earned overtime from his previous position. From February 2017 to January 1, 2018, BEF had paid Abdul a total of $2640 in overtime pay.

On February 8, 2018, Abdul was also informed that he was required to agree to a new oral agreement permitting BEF Company to eliminate any unused vacation. Given that it was a busy year, Abdul never had the chance to use any of his three weeks of his vacation.

Unfortunately, things went from bad to worse!  On February 20, 2018, BEF lost its second major client which accounted for 10% of BEF’s business.

On February 21, 2018, all 400 employees of BEF Company were informed that their employment would be terminated immediately.  Abdul was provided with 2 weeks termination pay in lieu of notice via direct deposit to his bank account.  However, BEF Company filed for bankruptcy on February 24, 2018 and Abdul was unable to recover any additional monies owing to him.
