Section 50.1

No employer may require an employee to pay credit card costs.

1997, c. 85, s. 366; 2002, c. 80, s. 12.

Interpretation

An employer is prohibited from requiring that an employee pay any expenses whatsoever related to the use of a credit card and including the proportion of these expenses attributable to tips. This provision is based on the principle set out in section 50 ALS whereby the gratuity belongs to the employee and is not part of the wages that are owing to him.
