Spotlight on Reporting Pay
- Published: 14 November 2014
Under Article 7.06 of the United Nurses of Alberta Provincial Collective Agreement, if a Full-time or
Part-time employee reports for work as scheduled and is requested by the employer to leave, the
employee shall be compensated for the inconvenience by a payment equal to four hours pay at the
employee’s rate of pay.
The employee shall also be reimbursed for the cost of reasonable transportation expenses for a
round trip between the worksite and their home.
If less than four hours remain in the scheduled shift, the employee shall be paid for the remaining
hours of the scheduled shift at the employee’s rate of pay. This does not apply in situations where the
start time of the scheduled shift has been changed.
Some employees have been told when they report for work that the entire shift is cancelled, but
since the employer is required to pay them for 4 hours, the employee must work for four hours.
This is incorrect. If the employee was asked to work 4 hours, they would be paid for 4 hours
worked plus 3.75 hours reporting pay, for a total of 7.75 paid hours.
If an employee is sent home after their shift, for example, 5 hours of a 7.75 hour shift, they must
be paid for the 5 hours worked plus 2.75 hours reporting pay, for a total of 7.75 paid hours.
Reporting Pay for Casual employees
Under Article 30.03(a)(iv)(A) of the Provincial Collective Agreement, in the event a Casual employee
reports to work as scheduled or called and the employer cancels the employee’s shift, the employee
shall be paid four hours pay at the employee’s Basic rate of pay.
