Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear this.
Were you an employee or an independent contractor?
When you say no I'm not sure what you mean. I asked if you were an employee or an independent contractor. So are you saying that you think you wee an independent contractor?How much are you owed?
Then what you have to do is actually quite simple. All you have to do is file a complaint with the employment standards branch. They will assist you in getting back all that you are owed including the over time. They will also get you vacation pay if you are entitled to that. And they will not charge you for doingIt sounds like your coworker already did this.I suggest that you contact them right now and they will quickly do what is needed to be done for you by doing what is necessary to get the money on your behalf. You will have little else to do. You do not need to retain a lawyer at this point in time. However, if you do want to speak to lawyer then you can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.The number is:1-***-***-****
Does that help as a starting point?Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
I don't understand.
But he has to pay you and not submit anything to the government.
So I suggest you deal with the Employment Standards Branch at once.
It may be fine but I am suggesting you don't just do the online form and wait.
I am suggesting that you call the Employment Standards Branch and ask them.
Also could you please rate me now. We can still go up and back if you still need me but I should be rated now so I that I can get paid since I did the bulk of the work yesterday.
