A server at a retirement community in Saskatchewan was paid outstanding overtime wages owed to her by her employer after an arbitrator said it had violated the collective agreement.

Susanne Kraus, a full-time permanent server at the Bentley in Moose Jaw, Sask., since 2008, filed a grievance when she said she was not paid at the appropriate compensation rate for coming in on her day off.
