Why is my employment agreement important?

Printer-friendly version

If an employee is ready, willing and able to work, and there is nothing in their employment agreement dealing with the consequences of earthquakes, they are entitled to be paid as they would otherwise be paid. If the employee’s ability to work has been otherwise affected by the earthquake it will be necessary to determine whether or not there are any applicable provisions in the collective agreement. For example redundancy, variation and force majeure clauses.
