Canada (Federal), Canada

The following excerpt is from Chapman v. Treasury Board (Department of National Defence), 2013 PSLRB 73 (CanLII):

30 The grievor’s position creates an obligation on the employer to pay overtime when travel is an exercise of the grievor’s prerogative outside the employer’s control. The PSLRB discounted that position in Vallières v. Canadian Food Inspection Agency, 2001 PSSRB 83, at para 33 and 34.
