Yes.

An employee may request to take vacation time during a temporary layoff.  An employee that requests vacation time is entitled to be paid their full remuneration throughout the vacation period. Employers may, however, refuse the request if they do not have the ability to pay the employee for their vacation period.

If you have been temporarily laid off in the COVID-19 era and have been denied vacation, or if you are an employer and your employees have approached you about using vacation time while on a temporary layoff, please contact Toronto employment lawyers, Sultan Lawyers at 416-214-5111 or via email to mlahert@sultanlawyers.com.
