Overtime under assault: HWAAs = Banked Time Gone Wild

Overtime under assault: HWAAs = Banked Time Gone Wild

Punchline: Overtime, under the guise of extended “Banked Time”, is under assault in Alberta. That, of course, is not how it is explicitly described in “Hours of Work Averaging Agreements“, but that’s the gist of what’s going on …

“Hours of Work Averaging Agreements: HWAAs can be between groups of employees (with majority consent binding all members of the group) and an employer or an individual employee and employer. They allow the employer to average hours of work over a period of up to 12 weeks in order to determine overtime pay or time off with pay. HWAAs also allow the employer and employee to establish a daily overtime threshold, which cannot exceed 12 hours.”
