Goldblatt Partners LLP has served a statement of claim in a proposed class action against four related companies: Handa Travel Student Trip Ltd. o/a I Love Travel, Campus Vacations Holdings Inc., 2504027 Ontario Inc. o/a Breakaway Tours and 2417988 Ontario Inc. o/a S-Trip! (collectively referred to as “S-Trip”).
The statement of claim alleges, among other things, that S-Trip violated the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (the “ESA”) and its contracts of employment with Trip Leaders by misclassifying the Trip Leaders as “volunteers” and failing to pay them wages, overtime, vacation pay and public holiday pay in accordance with the ESA.
The class members covered by this proposed class action are all Trip Leaders who worked for S-Trips on trips commencing in or departing from Ontario since May 18, 2016.
