37 (2) b): The order of daily work in an investment agreement should not provide for more than 40 hours on a one-week schedule or an average of 40 hours on a 2 to 4 week schedule, as stated in the letter P.37 (3). 37 (2) c): The worker must receive a copy of the agreement before the work plan begins during the programming period. 3. A funding agreement sets a schedule of 12 hours per day and one day per week. If all other terms of the contract are met in s.37 (2), this would be a valid agreement. (a) 40 hours if the agreement provides for a one-week period under subsection (2) point (a) iii); b) an average of 40 hours per week when the agreement provides for more than a week under subsection (2) a) iii). A key aspect of the imclassification provisions of the Working Hours Act is that there must be a written and signed agreement on overtime extensions before overtime begins. (Employers who wish to prove in retrospect the existence of an agreement at average hours can expect little sympathy from the Department of Employment Standards.) A more detailed description of the funding agreement provisions is available in ESA Section 37. For more information, please see the following guidelines for employment standards agencies: a fact sheet on funding agreements, a deviation sheet and interpretive guidelines for funding agreements. In BC, employers can obtain a funding agreement for new recruitment.
This is done by indicating in the letters of offer that the offer is subject to written acceptance of the terms of the financing agreement. Although not so simple, the same can be done for existing employees. Existing staff must agree in writing to a funding agreement, i.e. they also have the right to object. The only way to overcome this opposition is to state in writing that the current employment after the notice period has expired depends on the written acceptance of the funding agreement. The employer is threatened with dismissal unless the workers accept the new terms of employment. Some people may not be satisfied with a tactic that could be perceived as „hard.“ Example: Employment ends 2 weeks in an average of 4 weeks. A total of 90 hours of work were completed. Weekly overtime would not be due, as the total working time did not exceed 160 hours (4 weeks X x x per week), since the number of repetitions of the agreement can be renewed, and do overtime rates apply to a worker who works under a fund agreement? This depends on both the number of hours scheduled and the number of hours worked.
