Employees offered additional shifts in error can have those shifts changed within the posted and confirmed period without triggering overtime provided the Employer makes the change within fourty-eight (48) hours of offering the additional shift(s) in error. In the event that an error is discovered more than fourty-eight (48) hours after it was made, the Employer shall offer the work to the more senior Employee while honoring the commitment made to the more junior employee.
In order for an employee to receive pay for a missed shift they must work the hours associated with that pay. As well, an employee should not lose out on opportunities to work additional hours. Where an error is made in the allocation of relief work at regular rates of pay, the following process will be followed:
- The error must be discovered and reported no later than twenty-one (21) calendar days after the work is performed. If not raised within the twenty-one (21) calendar days, no remedy will be provided.
- If an error is raised and confirmed, the matter will be remedied by the employee selecting and working a replacement supernumerary shift of equivalent value, in the same department and classification, within eight (8) weeks of the missed shift, or within another time period as agreed to by the employee and the employer.
- If the employee would have normally been offered another shift at the same time as the replacement shift, the employee will work the regular shift and be offered another opportunity to select a replacement supernumerary shift of equivalent value, in the same department and classification within the next four (4) week period following the date of the conflicting shifts, or within another time period as agreed to by the employee and the employer.
