Does an employee earn vacation pay when taking a paid leave?
By Representative, Employment Standards Branch | August 31, 2011
Someone is off on a paid leave (by WSIB) for surgery, Should they accrue vacation monies as if they were working? This is in Ontario.
Representative, Employment Standards Branch answered:
We spoke with a representative from Ontario's Employment Standard Branch to answer your question.
He explained that vacation pay is payable on wages, so the employee would not accrue vacation pay in the situation you described.
