Winnipeg Free Press: Select Sushi Restaurateurs Fined For Employment Violation


WINNIPEG — Winnipeg sushi restaurateurs have reportedly been fined by the Employment Standards agency for allegedly failing to pay employees holiday pay or overtime, according to the Winnipeg Free Press.

The paper reports that several sushi restaurants received warnings following random spot checks by Employment Standards inspectors; nineteen sushi restaurants were reportedly fined with wage violations.

The Employment Standards can impose a penalty of $500 per employee per offence, to a maximum of $10,000, for failing to comply with “The Employment Standards Code or The Construction Industry Wages Act,” when the violation occurs after the person has been warned to comply.
