On Jan 1st of our 3rd year of employment we are given a 3rd week of paid vacation. Our work week is based on 37.5 hours. I work almost 60 hours every week. The co-workers giving away these hours do not lose their 3rd week of vacation, even if they do not work the hours. Come year end, when I asked about vacation pay on my overtime, I was told that the 3rd week given at the beginning of the year covers the overtime. Are they allowed to double-dip on that 3rd week? If I had not worked the overtime, I would still be getting this 3rd week.
I have been on a leave of absence from my employee for the past 2 years in order to accompany my wife on an overseas work assignment she had for her work. My employer has a policy stating the maximum duration of a leave of absence in this situation is 2 years. After 2 years, they terminated my employment. I have an Equity Award that was scheduled to vest 2 months after the termination date and I am wondering if I am eligible for this to be paid to me? I am happy to provide the relevant documentation directly to
My job has changed their payout structure. They went from monthly commission to straight salary with an annual bonus. I was not offered a package just the new salary and a transition quarterly payout. Is this aloud or did they need to offer a package as well?
I was sent to Halifax from Edmonton under false pretence. I volunteered for the work described by my employer, on arrival to Halifax the required work changed and I refused. I called OHS on a site that had safety issues. The employer corrected it before OHS arrived. They flew me back to Edmonton the next day. Now they have an investigation and they keep bringing up OHS, who called ohs? Ect they interrogated 3 other staff that were also sent with me. They made me submit a statement regarding the chain of events that lead up to us returning to Edmonton. Theyre going to make me pay back the live out that was provided to me.. I spent money on food for my hotel and I had to dispose of it all before leaving. I also disposed of food in my fridge before leaving, I was supposed to be there for 2 weeks. I also had to pay for a sitter to watch my pets for those 2 weeks. What are my legal rights regarding this issue. What’s the statute of limitations on filing a lawsuit against them if they dismiss me a month from now. I have perfect attendance and my reviews are always good. Never been written up or had a verbal but I feel they are searching for ways to dismiss me.
I have advanced cancer with poor survival prognosis, on STD currently. If my doctor and I decide that I can return to work if I am responding to short term treatments, I will obviously not be as healthy as someone without cancer and will need time for treatments, appointments etc. My cancer is incurable. I will have to deal with cancer for the rest of my life and likely, it will kill me. Can my employer then terminate me for under performance? If I choose to apply for LTD, can they terminate me while I am in the application process or on LTD? Company has gone through several rounds of layoffs.
