Question: Do we have to pay employees a higher hourly rate for working on a Sunday?

Answer: There are no requirements in any employment/labour standards laws across Canada that require employers to pay employees more for working on a Sunday. It may be required by a collective agreement or an employment contract. If the employee is working overtime hours or working on a statutory holiday, there may be additional payment requirements.
