I was recently let go from my job because I told my manager I will be getting back surgery. My manager misunderstood me and thought I was having surgery the following week. It will take several months before I will get the actual appointment for surgery. I came to work for my shift and notice I was not on the schedule. This happen two days after I told management I will need back surgery. Can my employer let me go for this reason?
I was just let go, laid off due to work shortage, I only started their January 15th after being recruited by them from a competitor, where I worked for 12 years, do I have any case for a larger payout of 1 weeks pay?
My son has worked in a concrete plant since April 2017, for the first 4 months through a temp agency, and after that as a full time employee. He was given 2 days notice of a layoff. Is he entitled to 2 weeks severance? If they tell him it's a temporary layoff, is he still entitled to severance?
I work as a security guard in Ontario. The company has us on 11 hour shifts on a 2 week posted roster. I work 2 days/nights on and 5 days/nights off. Days are for spring summer early fall and nights october 1 to may 1 approximately. When working the 5 day/night shift that adds up to 55 hours. The company claims that because it crosses into a different pay period(starting ending) they don't have to pay overtime on the 55 hours I never really take them to task about it as rocking the boat you get let go I just asked casually one time couple years ago. So I am just curious to know from you people Thanks
I was fired for something I did recently that went against the "business code of conduct" yet had done it before without being spoken to or anything. They just decided to take action this time, almost as if they were looking for a reason to get rid of me. Problem is even after being there for just shy of 5 years I did not receive any severance or any other sort of pay out when other employees that were terminated for the same reason in the past received at least something.
