    Good afternoon,
    My company is located in Ontario, and my question is regarding Statutory Holiday pay. I had an employee who was placed on a two week suspension and this occurred during the Family Day holiday. Is the employee eligible for the stat pay even though they were on a suspension and did not work the day before and the day after the holiday?
    Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,

    Turns out my above answer is INCORRECT. Here’s what Alan says:
    Sorry, Glenn, you’re wrong on this one.
    The fact of the employee being on suspension has no bearing on this. The only question is whether he or she failed to work all of this or her last regularly scheduled day before the suspension.
    The suspension days don’t themselves count, since the employee was obviously not scheduled to work those days.
    However, the normal calculation rules apply. In other words, the employee’s earnings in the prior 4 weeks divided by 20, would presumably result in less than a full days pay, since I’m assuming the suspension was without pay
    Hope that helps and sorry for the misinformation. Alan knows payroll so much better than I do. Glenn
