Hi there I am currently working full time at home with the company I am with and occasionally when necessary meet with clients at the showroom. My employer HR department sent out an email on Monday asking everyone to share their vaccination plans with them and requiring a response no later than Wednesday. My concerns are the following: - can they mandate a vaccine ? - are they violating my privacy and human rights asking this information ? - can we be terminated should we not take the vaccine for our own personal reasons ? - what are our rights as employees in this situation? - the vaccine does not mean we are immune Covid, however, is it the employers responsibility to continue to ensure proper PP&E and social distancing is in effect? Any clarity in this matter would be appreciated as I feel we are all in the grey zone of what our rights and freedoms are in the work place. Thank you
Hi. I was working in job for the last 3 years and the contract has ended in April 30. During the last few weeks on that job, I worked in a job for about 20 days in which I quitted it for causing me a mental issue. I quitted it while I'm still working in the first job. Now after my contract ended, I applied to the EI and didn't mention the job that I quitted after 20 days as I was in probation period and I quitted it voluntarily. Will not mentioning that job effect my EI or it would be considered as a fraud?
I'm a truck driver and I had a class one that I got while the melt training was mandatory but I got a farmers exemption so I didn't have to take the melt training but then I got told that my class 1 will get taken away my March 1 2021 if I don't take the Melt knowledge and road test. I moved to BC for a few months and BC doesn't have the MELT program in place yet so I didn't need it. After a few months I moved back to AB and since I bought my license back to AB after March 1st my class 1 got revoked back to a class 3 now I'm no longer eligible to work for my company as a truck driver. My company terminated me with the cause of not having a class 1. It's not my fault but they didn't state that in my letter of termination they only stated that "since I don't have a class 1 anymore they will terminate me." Am I eligible to claim EI now?
a salaried store manager is told to reduce part-time employee’s hours and then told they personally need to work the hours they just reduced. If the store manager doesn’t want to work more then 40 hours can they be terminated?
I'm been working for my company for 10 years. A year and a half ago, I was switched to another team (not given a choice) with additional responsibilities. My new boss/team is located in another province, and I've been working with them remotely. Over the past year, I've been inundated to more work that one person can handle (expanded / convoluted responsibilities) and pressured into lots of un-paid overtime due to impossible deadlines, among other problems. I just received an email from my boss stating that I have two-months to improve my performance or I'll be terminated. The company is a very large corporation. If terminated, what is a fair severance I can expect? Thank you.
