Note: I'm making this company as if it were located in Ontario, Canada. So all the proper rules and regulations of that region would apply to this company.
I'm currently using the software Quickbooks to set up a mock company and figure out how to pay employees that are commission only. When I create a new employee in the company I select the commission-only option for payment which is what I want. But after selecting this option the employee's vacation pay policy becomes this:
As a commission-only employee, John does not accrue vacation or sick time. Any vacation or sick time policies you've set up do not apply to John.
I was under the impression that ALL employees have to be paid a minimum of 4% vacation pay. After looking on some of the government's website regarding vacation pay and commissions, I can't seem to find any mention of an exemption for commission only employees. Thus contradicting what the Quickbooks software is telling me.
Therefore my question is:
Do commission only employees need to be paid vacation pay?
