15 + years employee 8weeks per yr holidays holiday pay: is a company allowed to hold back your holiday pay and only give it to you as you ask for it.here is the scenario i work 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off 12 hour days 168 hrs per set. so i get 2weeks off am i allowed to say those are my holidays and just take a payout on my holiday pay. or do i have to take 2 weeks off when someone says i have to(when i dont want to)Our company says we are not allowed to be paid out for holidays and wont give us our money that has accumulated over the year for our holidays. I need to know if this is correct and what i can do if anything about it.I know that BC labour standards say you are to be paid 7 days prior to your holiday however thats not the case with our company they pay you on thier regular pay run and only 2 weeks worth at a time so they hold your money longer.what are my choices and how can i resolve this, or should i proceed in a more agressive manner.
State/Country relating to question: Canada
i work in BC
I have tried talking to the payroll dept direct
I have tried asking our manager several times.
In fact in the past they did do payouts when requested,now they said they cant do that.
