Nathalie is laid off at the same time as 12 of her colleagues. Instead of giving her the notice of collective dismissal, her employer decides to pay her a compensatory indemnity. She will receive a compensatory indemnity equal to 8 weeks of wages. Each week, Nathalie earns $455 for 40 hours of work.
The indemnity to which she is entitled is thus:
$455/week × 8 = $3,640
To calculate the compensatory indemnity of an employee receiving tips, it is necessary to take into consideration only his wages earned during the period in question. The tips reported by the employee or attributed by the employer are not included in the calculation of the indemnity.
