3.21Payments relating to partial work bans—working out proportion of reduction of employee's payments
For subsection 471(3) of the Act, the proportion mentioned in
paragraph 471(2)(a) of the Act is worked out for an employee or a class of employees by carrying out the following steps.
Identify the work that an employee or a class of employees is failing or refusing to perform, or is proposing to fail or refuse to perform.
Estimate the usual time that the employee or the class of employees would spend performing the work during a day.
Work out the time estimated in Step 2 as a percentage of an employee's usual hours of work for a day.
The solution is the proportion by which the employee's payment will be reduced for a day.
