I was laid off due to coved since last March. My employer has never called me back even though they have been open. They have just sold the company and I have been asking repeatedly for my severance pay. They have not responded and have ignored me. I have made several attempts to connect with them but nothing. What should I do?
Hi I currently work as an indoor mechanic my employer wants me to go work Mobile in the summer , because it slowed down what can i do?
My employer asked me to complete a construction site planning task, which ended up taking me 14hours. We were both surprised how long it took, but it is what ended up being required. They believe it should have only taken 4hrs and are only offering to pay me 4hrs, out of the 14hrs it took. Does this mean if I can't prove it took that long they don't have to pay me for it, because I have no way of proving it actually did.
I have a upcoming layoff later this year. The severance contract was extremely generous and i have accepted and signed it. My company is hinting at keeping me now. How does this work with a signed termination papers? Can we sign them off and keep me working there? Or is there any legal obligation the company has to follow to keep me? This is not a unionized company.
I resigned from a large utility company in Ontario after being a manager there for just 21 months. I left because the verbal expectations for advancement and pay increases for me were not met. When I joined the company I signed an offer that included move benefits (I moved from BC). Part of the move benefits stated that if I left before two years, I need to pay back a pro-rated amount for those move benefits. Shortly after giving my notice I was sent a letter saying they will withhold the pro-rated amount for the move benefits from my last pay cheque. Can they do that? When I review the legislation it looks like they cannot. Should I reply to the letter and say I do not authorize any deductions from my final pay cheque?
