I gave my employer 2 weeks notice to end employment. My last day of work was Sunday 13th June. They are now telling me that they have 8 days to prepare cheque and then they would mail it to me. is that correct or legal? I have read they have 6 days for me to receive my last pay. Could you please confirm
I just wanted to say I am very familiar with your law firm as I have watched most of the programs on tv for the last year or so. I have a lot respect for your main firm and main partners. Now as I write this I was a little surprised that I was told that there would be a inital cost of $300.00 to talk to one of your lawyers, but I was surprised to here this as this is the first time I have ever been told there would be an up front cost to talk to a lawyer and frankly a little disappointed. I have been employed with this company for almost 18yrs and for at least 15hrs was hired a licensed Life insurance agent to verify insurance products. I have also sold products through this company in addition to verifying insurance products. I am not going to go into details or the notes I have kept but if this is something I can get help on I would pursue it further. Started in 2003, suffered a Stroke towards middle of Feb. 2021 and have not been working since. My doctor did provide a letter to my employer that I would be off until June 21st and as of this week the doctor has extended this to Sept. 27th, 2021 again due to medical reasons. Not sure what the future holds for me but I have not quit this job. I am also needing answers to a potential of going on a CPP disability at some point and how would this affect any options for say a forced termination and ie any severance I might qualify for. I will be turning 60 in the fall and again everything is confidental here and I thought I would reach out to you.
Hello- I've been laid off since March from my job as a group fitness instructor. I've recently been recalled and the job has changed significantly, the only work being offered to me is outdoors which involves carrying heavy equipment across to a parking lot, more time commitment to do so, and being outside in direct sun to teach multiple physical demanding classes in mandatory full PPE, mask and shield. The last time I was employed I was teaching virtual classes inside, and these are still being run and I've made it clear that I'm happy to come back and teach any indoor classes. My question is; will the change in the role be big enough that it is reasonable for me to refuse the recall? I've been collecting EI and if they change my ROE status to "quit" I will if course be ineligible to continue to receive help. However the job being offered to me is not the job I had. Thanks in advance.
Hi there, I know summer camps in Ontario operate with exemptions to the ESA. From what i understand, this includes minimum wage, holiday pay, and overtime pay for students working and living onsite in the summer. However, can you confirm that the following are not exceptions: -paid mandatory training (I.e. first aid is mandatory for starting and continuing employment, so it should count as hours worked and the cost of the course should also be covered by the employer) -minimum wage, overtime pay, and public holiday pay for employees who are not students and work year-round, unless specifically stated in an agreement signed by the employees Lastly, if you are a salaried employee, can you confirm that overtime and public holiday pay rules still apply?
Hello, I have returned to work from being on disability my doctor wrote a note stating 6 hours per shift per day which state honored and I will be moving from full-time to part-time. As a part-time worker the company has 8 hour shifts on Saturday they are telling me I need to go back to the insurance company for them to approve my accommodation to work 6 hours only on Saturday. Is this something they can do and does it make sense that I have to have the insurance company approve me to work 2 hours less which is not paid anyway?
