I have been terminated from my job. They have not offered me a severance package as I don’t think they will. I am almost positive. They will probably just deposit two weeks termination pay into my account. I have made an appointment to speak to one of your paralegals on March 5, but I am concerned that they will do this before I actually speak to someone there, what am I obligated to do with this money if they go ahead and do this
i have worked at a company for 11 years. i had my 11 year review. my salary was 75k and they bumped me up to 78k. so i then asked if they could bump be up to 80k (doesn't hurt to ask). they came back and gave me the 80k. but they said i had to sign a new employment contract and that it's part of getting a raise. i have gotten a raise every year and have never had to sign a contract every year. do i have to sign this one after 11 years? is it mandatory? can i lose my job if i don't? nothing had change, just the salary. same role, same owners, same everything.
Hi, I was wondering if I still have a case after the following: My employer didn’t pay me vacation pay for 4 years and 10 months. I worked 2 days a week and never received Parin’s until Jan 31, 2024 (my last day). That’s when I noticed vacation pay had not been paid. I brought it to their attention. They insisted it was included in the gross pay which was not true. They finally offered 2 and a 1/2 years of the unpaid vacation pay which I accepted via email. This was because if I accepted I would be able to do an assignment for them and get paid outside payroll. I needed the money so I accepted. Do I have a case for the unpaid vacation pay of 2 years and 4 mths? They gave me verbal notice Jan 8 and I worked until Jan 31. 2024. They said they were cutting costs and on the ROE it says dismissal/suspension. So no severance was given. Thanks, Nimed Bent 403 703 5678

On Oct 18th I received notice that my position was eliminated while I was on STD. The letter I received indicated while on STD my current disability leave would not be impacted with no immediate action required from me. I was contacted by my Director to advise of the situation and was told to call him once I was ready to return to work and they would go through the next steps with me. As I’m still considered an employee, I was not provided with any details pertaining to a severance package as of this date. In mid December I transitioned from short term to long term disability and I am still currently on LTD. Is or will my severance package be compromised once I’m cleared to return to work since the notice was given while on STD.
