I’ve been fired. When do I get my paperwork and pay?

Know your options if your employer hasn’t paid what they owe you

The (ESA) says that if your employer owes you any at the time you’re fired, they have to pay you by the later of these two dates:

  • 7 days after your job ends
  • your next regular payday

Wages includes vacation pay and money they owe you because you’ve been fired. For example, this includes .

If your employer still owes you money, you may want to consider making a claim with the Ministry of Labour. They can order your employer to pay you.

You may also want to get legal advice about how much your employer owes you.

If you’re not covered by the ESA, you may want to consider suing your employer in court for what they owe you.
