No.

When an employee is temporarily laid off, the employment relationship remains intact and continues throughout the layoff period. Given this, employers do not have to pay their employees for any accrued vacation time or provide any sort of compensation.

If you do not accept the temporary layoff and believe you have been constructively dismissed, then you may be entitled to payment for accrued vacation.

If you have been temporarily laid off and want to better understand your rights, or are concerned that your layoff may trigger a termination of your employment, please contact Toronto employment lawyers, Sultan Lawyers at 416-214-5111 or via email to mlahert@sultanlawyers.com.
