Monkhouse Law has filed for an order to certify a class action lawsuit against Medcan Health Management Inc. for underpaid vacation and public holiday pay on variable compensation such as commissions and bonuses.
The action is the fifth filed by Monkhouse Law against a large company for shortchanging employees on vacation and public holiday pay. Orders to certify class actions were previously filed against RBC Insurance Agency Ltd., RBC Life Insurance Co. and Aviva General Insurance Co., Bank of Montreal and Approval Team. Those actions are ongoing and allegations are to be proven in court.
The employee class action lawsuit alleges that the company’s practice of calculating vacation and public holiday pay for variable compensation employees violated the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (ESA). Learn more about vacation pay.

IMPORTANT – No action is required by employees to join this class action. In Ontario, class action lawsuits are an “opt out” system, so if this class action lawsuit is certified, all employees who fall under the class action definition will be members of the class unless they opt out.
Current and former variable compensation employees who have information that may assist the litigation should contact Alexandra Monkhouse at 416-907-9249, ext. 211 or firstname.lastname@example.org
