Many seasonal retailers are hired on some of the busiest shopping days of the year to work – including Boxing Day. As Boxing Day in Ontario is a statutory holiday, retail employees have the right to take this day off. A seasonal worker cannot receive the required holiday pay during the low season if he is not at the workplace. Self-employed workers are people who are in the store for their own account and who usually have more leeway to dictate how and when the work is done. They are often able to appoint a substitute who instead loses the job if they do not want to do the work in person. Full-time contract, but seasonal hours – 9 hours in summer shorter in winter – they should make an average vacation day throughout the year or take the corresponding hours in summer and less in winter….? Companies that have to perform regular tasks and at the same time each year, depending on the seasons or collective lifestyles (holiday periods, tourism, etc.) can resort to seasonal contracts. Some companies have an influx of work at certain times of the year, while others can only work seasonally. Hiring seasonal workers allows these companies to recruit temporary staff to cover the extra work only while they are needed. In this way, employees will not be dismissed abruptly and unexpectedly. For example, department stores expand their workforce during the Christmas period, when the majority of the population buys gifts for people they care about. During the summer, hotel resorts experience an increase in the number of tourists who need additional labor to stop the level of service. Here they need seasonal workers.

Employers should also keep in mind that bonuses and entitlements must correspond to a permanent employee and not be confused with those of an occasioned employee. A seasonal worker will be freed from the workload during the period during which he is employed, while casual workers are ad hoc employees and do not expect regular and continuous work. Employers should be aware of the difference between the two. CONSIDERING that the agreement insists on a purely seasonal employment relationship in which the enterprise is a seasonal contract in which the employment relationship ends after a given period or event. . . .
