I had worked 2 weeks for at an event through a temp staffing agency. The last day of work was April 2nd. A week latter I submitted my invoice. I still haven’t gotten paid. How long does an employer have to pay for a service? This is in BC, Canada.
I doubt more information is required but here’s some background: The temp agency claims I am a contractor, though I don’t see how this works as they made my schedule and tell me how to do the job etc. We had an averaging agreement for hours worked and there was no overtime. Also a week ago they sent me a contract to sign saying they had forgotten to send it before work, though I doubt this has any affect on when they were supposed to pay me.
According to here
An employee must be paid in full within 48 hours after the employer ends the employment, or within six days if the employee quits.
Though since the employer is trying to play up I'm a contractor, I'm not sure if this applies.
