See below image for the Staff wage per minute diagram. Employees must be paid for at least 3 hours of pay at the minimum wage each time they’re required to report to work, or come to work for short periods. This 3-hour minimum doesn’t apply if the employee isn’t available to work the full 3 hours.
When employment ends, employers must pay employees their final wages. All employees must be paid at least minimum wage wage per hour. The minimum wage in B.C. is $13.85 per hour. An employee who reports for work must be paid for at least two hours, even if they work less than two hours.
If an employee works for fewer than 3 consecutive hours, the employer must pay wages that are at least equal to 3 hours at the minimum wage. If an employee’s regular wage is greater than the minimum wage, the employer may pay them for less than 3 hours of work at this higher rate, as long as the total is higher than 3 hours at minimum wage.
