Proposed AE Hospitality Class Action
On September 9, 2019 Monkhouse Law started a proposed class action against AE Hospitality, a number of related corporations, and their directors.
The lawsuit alleges that AE Hospitality misclassified its workforce as contractors. Some of the workers were already determined to be employees by the Tax Court of Canada in the case of AE Hospitality Ltd. v. M.N.R., 2019 TCC 116 (CanLII), <http://canlii.ca/t/j0k6b> (case currently under appeal).
If considered employees under labour law, workers would then be owed vacation pay, holiday pay, overtime pay and other minimum benefits.
