I was terminated from a sales position after almost 3 yrs. The company has offered 6 wks notice/lieu and 6 wks severance. They are only recognizing commissions based upon sales that are invoiced as of my termination date as per a clause in my contract. Am I entitled to commissions on sales that come in during my severance period or is it as of the date of my letter? I am asking because I have $3M in sales that are highly likely to firm up in the next 2 months.
I just got hired after the first wave of the pandemic on September 8, 2020 and now laid off in February 2021, just under 6 months which is stated as probation in my employment letter and it says termination is based on ESA. I was not given any reason and told about not the right fit. I am an older worker in late 50’s. My weekly one on ones did not indicate any issues. I was paid out 2 weeks notice only and accrued vacation. Do I have any grounds based on “age discrimination” ?
I have been working for my company for near 6 years, I’m supposed to be part-time. Before Covid, I was working 5 days/week but have had to take LOAs while schools were closed during lockdown and when I went back in September, I only went back for 3 days/week. I was off again during Christmas due to the second school closure. I am currently trying to arrange my return to work but due to changes with family, I need to continue working at the reduced schedule of 3 days/week that I had been working. My employer is refusing to accommodate this and insists I must return at full capacity of 5 days per week if I wish to return to work. I cannot give what he’s asking and I am sure I will lose my job. Can my employer fire me or force my resignation? Thanks
I live in Ontario I work for a large distribution center for one of the largest retailers in the world. Our maintenance department of all skilled trades Millwrights and electricians were given a letter informing us that the company will no long pay for our lunch breaks. We work a 12 hour continental shift. I have been with the company for 27 years 24 as a Millwright and for the last 20 years I have been working the 12 hour shift.our agreement was when we transferred to the new distribution center we wound need to go from8 hours 3 shifts to 12 hour continental and too sweeten the deal they said they would pay for our lunchs and breaks. So we agreed at that time we were called SCM third party logistics for Walmart. Seven years ago we went form SCM to monarch logistics then to Walmart logistics. During this transition they indicated there would be no changes. what are are options .This also means our wages will be reduced buy 1/2 hour a day over $3600. A year also they are apparently giving us 12 weeks notice and lump sum payments which tolat 1600 dollars in the coming year .Non of us agree too this can you advise us
I have a friend that belongs to a union, and the union is basically useless. A lot of the union stewards are in Management positions so they try to dissuade the union member from putting in grievances, or bringing up any concerns they have with Management. I know that you can't intervene when a union is involved in a company. What is a person to do when they are in this kind of position? Where can they go for help?
