Bus 681 week 6 discussion 2
In Canada, employees typically receive overtime wages for any hours worked after 8 hours per day or 44 hours per week—a higher threshold than in the US where companies must provide overtime wages if employees work over 40 hours during a 7-day period. Additionally, Canada has a stronger emphasis on job security than America does with “just cause” legislation that requires employers to have valid reasons for terminating employment which they must prove if taken to court by their former employee. This type of legislation is not federally mandated in the US though some states may require it depending on their own state laws.
Canadian workers also enjoy more generous vacation times compared to those available in America. The Canadian government mandates a minimum of 2 weeks paid vacation at the start of employment although many companies offer more than this amount based on length of service or seniority level within an organization. In comparison, American law does not require employers to give any paid vacation days but most companies will offer varying amounts (from 0-3 weeks) based on tenure within an organization or other factors like job title or department/location .
Finally, Canadian employers are required by law to contribute towards pension plans while this requirement does not exist in America; most pensions are funded through voluntary contributions from both employers and employees rather than being mandatory across all organizations as they are in Canada. This can lead to disparities between what different organizations provide when it comes to retirement savings options for their staff members depending on whether they choose to participate or not – something that isn’t likely seen as often (if at all) in Canadian businesses due largely to legal requirements mandating pension plan contributions from employers regardless of size/sector etc..
