Hi, I was laid off in April 2020, and recalled back to work in June 2021 on a reduced work week. I didn't return to work and have given a doctor's certificate as I am now on medical leave until Oct 5/2021. Can I resign and be entitled to severance pay?
I’m working at my firm for 9 yrs. as a senior executive. Two years back, I was asked to take on additional responsibility (including signing legal documents for compliance purposes) compared to my peers at the same position. For over two years I have sent emails asking for an increase in compensation to account for the additional scope but my company has not made a change to account for the additional responsibilities. Additionally, my other responsibilities have reduces year on year and there has been discrimination against men in the company primarily to achieve diversity objectives. In future i anticipate further reduction in my direct scope leading to embarrassment for me within the firm and also externally. Multiple people have left due to the environment being toxic and biased. What options do i have?
I was on short term disability for two months and the last two weeks I was on accomodations to work from home. I had already worked from home previously so I had the laptop from work to do so. My employer refused to accomodate me. Prior to the end of the two weeks I resigned and my manager packed my office without my presence and emailed me with instruction to pick up my boxes. Is it against the law to deny me accomodations and to pack my office without me being present.
If I refuse to sign acknowledgement of receiving the Company Policy Handbook released after I have been employed for 15 years with the company could it be cause for dismissal and is it going to affect my severance pay?
