Averaging Agreements Manitoba

In Manitoba, employees can agree to establish a modified schedule through a funding agreement. In essence, this means that an employer can plan a worker so that he or she works longer per day at his or her normal wage. The employer then becomes, on average, the worker`s hours of work over a period of up to 12 weeks for a worker`s working time, in order to determine overtime pay. A means agreement can be reached if the new standard working hours are 12 hours or less per day and 60 hours or less per week on an average cycle of 12 weeks or less. These agreements are not subject to employment standards approval. If the standard working time (8 hours/day and 40 hours/week) does not correspond to a worker who works more than 35 hours per week, he can ask the employer for an individual agreement to adjust his schedule. The agreement may not exceed 40 hours per week and can be concluded by both parties with a 14-day period. Employers cannot use flexible scheduling agreements as a condition of employment or require a worker to enter into a flexible scheduling contract. Workers in the heavy and industrial, commercial and institutional construction sector cannot have their standard working hours changed by an average permit or agreement. These employees have industry and season-specific standard hours of work.

For more information, see the construction industry fact sheet. Under an average agreement, standard working hours can be up to 12 hours per day and 60 hours per week over a 12-week cycle. The province has not approved flexible hours, but will likely want to see the document if a worker has applied to the employment industry. Read the fact sheet on individual sliding schedule agreements. 452 hours / 12 weeks – 37.6 hours per week, or the average no more than 40 hours per week. The standard for working time is eight (10 days out of four) in one day and 40 in a week, although this can be changed by means agreements. Employers can set their new schedule over several weeks. The number of weeks agreed is considered a cycle. During the median cycle, normal hours should be less than 40 hours or less per week over a maximum of 12 weeks.

Examples can be found below. Housing employees who are not working on a major construction project may have their standard working hours changed with an average permit or agreement. A financing authorization is required if a company wants its new schedule to exceed one or more hours of standard work or cycle limits for an average agreement. In these situations, employment standards must approve an average permit to allow a company to change its standard working time. Employers who wish to change their company`s standard working time must apply for funding. An employment standards official reviews the application and can refer the application to the employer to discuss the application and whether the authorization has been approved.
