Tim Hortons boss accused of cheating Filipino workers for OT

Two former employees of a Tim Hortons in small-town British Columbia say their employer took advantage of their status as temporary foreign workers to cheat them out of overtime pay, and to pressure them to keep quiet about it.

Heide Kibanoff and her boyfriend, Richard Pepito, say Pierre Pelletier hired them and other Filipinos under Canada's Temporary Foreign Worker Program to work at the Tim Hortons in Fernie, where they often put in long hours.

The pair allege that Pelletier often made sure that the overtime that was paid came back to him — in cash.
