Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

You are an employee and not an independent contractor, correct?

They take EI and CPP and taxes from your paycheques?

But they don't pay you overtime, or give you vacation days or vacation pay or holiday pay?

Did you get a chance to read my questions to you? I cannot answer you in a meaningful way until I gather the appropriate information. There is no charge for us going up and back of course.

Thanks!
