Successful claim by employee to recover $17,388 from his former employer for unpaid overtime which he worked in 2000 and 2001. The Court found that Mr. Holland’s right under the Employment Standards Act to overtime is an unwritten term of his employment contract, such that he was allowed to bring his claim in the courts, and was not limited to filing a claim with the Employment Standards Branch.
