I'm currently on maternity leave in BC and am supposed to return to work in less than two weeks. My employer has suggested I consider returning to another role despite my original role still existing and would continue to be held by my maternity leave replacement. Am I entitled to return to my role as it has not changed and still exists? The alternate role currently available is not comparable to my original role.
I am currently on doctor approved sick leave for 4 weeks, ending on Thursday. I have a reassessment with my doctor scheduled for Monday. My employer has provided me with a non WSIB functional abilities form to be filled out by my doctor - which they claim will support my return to work. The form asks for confidential medical information such as diagnosis, treatment plan, medication. We only have LTD plan and not STD. As such, the information on the form will be going directly to my employer and not a 3rd party provider. Because I am part of the HR team, my boss and the boss of my boss will have access to the form. Am I obliged to provide the information? How can I refuse politely without damaging relationships? Thank you!
I was cleared by my insurance company's chosen occupational therapist to return to work but not by any other sort of doctor. I believe the sessions were more of a farce than anything. They were not productive in any way. He cleared me based on cognitive tests for memory, which have nothing to do with the emotional issues that put me on disability in the first place. Is this adequate to have me forced to return to work? I don't exactly have a family doctor at the moment, but my regular counsellor/therapist and two separate psychologists agreed that it's in my best interest not to return to this same toxic work environment.
Hello My role was eliminated and I was offered a severance package. I worked for the company for 45 months as a office assistant and am 32 years old What am I entitled to for severance pay?
I was recently let go from my renovation job after just 5 months of work. This is just after I called in sick (my 3rd legally allowed sick day for my entire length of employment). My boss is claiming that it is due to permit delays, not me calling in sick, but the timing is awfully suspicious. Is this legal? Is there a case here? Is this something I would be able to prove or that they could easily disprove? Would there be a good chance of winning such a case? Please let me know, any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you very much.
