Having had received a recent severance, would I be able to apply for the CRCB without any penalties or clawbacks?
I've been with a company for 20 consecutive years. In 2017 I was promoted and as such, signed a contract indicating that should I be terminated, I would be compensated with 3 months severance pay. Looking back, I should not have signed this, but I did. Is there anything I can do to get out of it, should they decide to end my business relationship? There is no talk of that, but I would like to be proactive should this happen. Thank you.
I work for a Federally regulated non unionized company located in Ontario. I have been with the company 23 years. I was injured at work and have been doing modified duties for the last 18 months. The WSIB Dr says my restrictions are permanent. I heard rumour that if I don’t return to my regular pre injury duties after 2 years that the company can let me go. Is this true, any feedback would be greatly appreciated? Also, if they do terminate me, do benefits and my company RRSP program get included in my severance pay?
o Describe Your Situation I was laid off work in March due to COVID. I was officially told in August by the company they would not be calling me back to work after 2 years and 10 months of service. At that time I requested my severance pay with my ROE. I received a cheque Oct 19/20 for $1760.01 less tax for my severance. I the interim I was employed by another company from Sept 29/20 to Oct 15/20 were I earned $2347.06 gross pay. I was let go from that company as it was a sales position and not a customer service position and my sales were not sufficient to the new company's satisfaction. At my age, 63 years old, I am finding it difficult to find a job and worry about the future. My question is how would me being employed after leaving the original job, affect my ability to collect severance from the first employer. thank you, Susan
