BC Paydays and Payroll Records


All employees must be paid at least twice a month.

A pay period cannot be longer than 16 days.

All wages earned in a pay period must be paid within eight days after the end of the pay period.

Employees must receive a written or electronic pay statement (pay stub) each pay day that gives all details about hours worked, rate(s) of pay, earnings and deductions. Employers must keep payroll records for each employee for two years after employment ends.

An employee must be paid in full within 48 hours after the employer ends the employment, or within six days if the employee quits. This time is by the clock and the calendar – not business hours or business days.
