    Our company has a vacation policy stating that employees will accrual vacation time and pay throughout the year to use within that year. The reference period is from Jan 1 to Dec 31.
    An employee resigned in our QC office at the beginning of the year (only had 1 stat holiday with us and left). Based on our policy, he only accrued the vacation pay for that 1 stat holiday. Do we owe the employee vacation fee from the previous year according to the QC law?

    From our payroll expert, Alan McEwan. Hope it answers your question:
    Couple of points.

    1. Unless the January to December vacation year is part of the terms and conditions of employment, i.e part of each employee’s contract of employment, its not permitted in Quebec. Without employee agreement the vacation year is fixed as May 1 to April 30.
    2. If this employees hasn’t been paid the vacation owing from 2021, then yes it must be paid out, plus the vacation for the statutory holiday worked in 2022.
