Labour and employment question

I am a RN working in Hospice in Vancouver BC. My organization is not unionized under BCNU. My employer is making me work a 12h night shift, I will finish at 7am and then am expected to be at a mandatory training from 9am until 12pm. Under BC Labour laws, am I entitled to be paid double time for the training?

It is likely that you have a claim for overtime under the Employment Standards Act. You could file a complaint with a local employment standards branch.
