I have worked at a company for 4 months now. Last week I had a cold and decided to stay home. After three days I was feeling better but decided to take the week off. I was then told that in order to return to work I would need to show proof of a negative covid test. I am looking for advice on my rights and if my employer is allowed to enforce this. I am willing to do the 14 day isolation but am not willing to do the testing.
I have worked for a company for roughly 2 years. I have been on leave for approximately 4 months with a foot ulcer. My employer was well aware of the situation and assured me several times not to worry about my job because it would be waiting for me when my foot was healed. i just received a phone call from my place of work telling me that my job was terminated at the time of that call. They sent me release forms to sign and have already followed up with phone calls urging me to hurry up and sign them even though i just received them. I was given no prior notice of this termination. Is my company allowed to do this?
How long do I have to work at a company to qualify for severance? The Ontario workplace website says 5 years
I was just terminated without cause after 8 years, and have agreement for payment in amount of 8 months severance. So my question is regarding eligibility for EI benefits, with the recent changes to EI, can I receive EI benefits during the severance pay period or do I have to wait until after severance period runs out?
I worked part time for my employer for about a year and a half and was doing so great and on a role to get promoted. On a normal day I wake up and get to work like usual and I was pulled in the office and I was terminated for cause because my wife used her points card when she came in to buy some stuff and it showed it was a card I also used so they said that I am benefiting from points while I am on my shift. So it is my wife's points card and under her name and we were planning to get married this year so she was going in with different family member to purchase stuff which is okay however when she used her points card because it was a card I use when I am not working so apparently it is showing that I am using the card while I am on my shift which is not true because it is my wife's points card.
