This section is intended for employees subject to the Decree respecting security guards.
To be subject to the Decree, you must perform security duties as defined in section 1.01.20 of the Decree and for a security agency that has its work carried out for others.
This is a management right of your employer. Under the Regulation respecting the keeping of a system of registration of the Parity Committee, it is up to the employer to keep an up-to-date register which must contain the number of hours worked per day for each employee, with the precise time that the work began, was interrupted, resumed and was completed. Consequently, the employer may require that you submit time sheets. It is strongly suggested that you keep a note of the dates, times and locations for each shift you have completed.

With reference to section 3.06 of the Decree, you must be paid from the time your employer requires your presence at its offices.
