OTTAWA, Ont. – The Government of Canada is updating the technical document used to explain how overtime is calculated for the trucking industry, a Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC) spokesman confirms.
Earlier in July the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) said on its website it had received related guidance materials on the issue. The clarified documents are meant to answer the most frequently asked questions about how to calculate overtime.
In the meantime, the CTA says carriers can get the FAQ documents from their provincial associations in both English and French.
- An earlier version of this article said the overtime rules are being changed. In fact, the updates concern the documents used to explain existing rules. Today’s Trucking regrets the error.
