Hi Lior, I think I just missed you on the AMA! I am am IT specialist stuck working from home with a reduced workload (I have spare time). I also have shifted some of my work after hours so I can go into the office when nobody is there. My question is, given that I could be laid off next month, can I start selling my time doing remote work for people by putting up a craigslist ad offering computer tech support for example? Is this "double dipping"? Thanks!

Hi! I work for Value Village in Pembroke Ontario. I was temporarily laid off due to Covid-19. They sent me some documents and it states that if my temporary layoff goes beyond 13 weeks then my job will cease. Value Village is an American based company. Is this legal or not?
My income is based upon a base plus commission structure. Last year's income was @ $140,000.00 Employer has just decided to pay all sales staff a straight commission instead. If I accept my income based on last year's revenue would be reduced by about 25% I am 63 years old, a manager and have been employed at the company for over 30 years. My concern is that I work for a small, privately owned company and they may not be around in 6 months. So I am not sure if I should pursue a constructive dismissal if they won't be around to pay out.
