Portland Hotel Society boss resigns as payroll chaos dogs employees (VCH)

The executive director of the Portland Hotel Society is resigning after less than two years on the job, as struggles continue with a new payroll system that has consistently delivered inaccurate payments.

Some PHS workers, along with their union representatives from CUPE 1004, say the payroll system has been malfunctioning for months, leading to financial insecurity, bounced rent cheques, non-sufficient fund fees from banking institutions and hours spent in the PHS payroll offices trying to get the money owed them.

PHS has an annual budget of $41.9 million which is provided mostly by Vancouver Coastal Health, B.C. Housing and the Vancouver Island Health Authority.
