Wage subsidy canada?

so if the wage subsidy pays 75 percent of your income and its up to the employer if they wanna pay the rest of the 25 and they don't, and i make 3000 per month, am i supposed to accept the 2250 as the monthly pay and not expect the rest of the 750 back ever despite working the same 40 hrs as i always have? Is that how it works?

    So first...no. That's not how it works.

    The 75% wage subsidy is only paid to employees who are laid off and NOT working. So instead of getting paid nothing, the employer can keep the employees on the payroll at 75% of their income. Think of it as paid vacation pay until things reopen again.

    If you're actually WORKING, your employer should be paying you 100% of your pay. If they're not, you should report it to the Labour Board in your province.
