Proposed class action focuses on vacation, public holiday pay

TORONTO  — A law firm has filed for certification of an $80-million class action lawsuit against RBC and Aviva insurance companies, alleging that their vacation and public holiday pay calculations for commissioned employees violate employment standards rules.

Monkhouse Law filed the claim in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in April on behalf of proposed representative plaintiff Kabir Singh, who worked as an insurance advisor at the companies from 2016 to 2019.
