I work for a US firm in Sales, they have asked for a drug screening test, in the email if I don t agree it is a breach of policy and act as my termination. Is this possible in Canada? They also want me to sign a document to have a criminal and credit check by a US firm, the documents asks for SIN number and can be shared with 3rd parties? Should I agree?
I'm a sales manager/supervisor at a call centre and am a salary employee. When the government shutdown was ordered in March for Cov 19 I was told I needed to make calls from home like the sales agents or apply for EI. I have been making sales calls from home and now was informed Monday May 12 my Salary is being reduced to 80%. My question is 2 fold, 1) Did I have any other options with respect to the change in my job description? 2) Can my Salary be reduced?
If you are on a temporary layoff, does it impact your seniority or continuous employment standing as it would relate to a severance package after you return to work?
I received an email that my position is no longer available, however I was told verbally that it will be in effect mid June. Does the notice of termination i rec'd allow me to leave now or will it be considered a resignation if I don't wait until the end of the term that they have specified verbally?
I was told that I was randomly chosen for a 60 day furlough. Not to long after I received a position elimination letter and it reads that the company does not have to legally pay me a severance but will do so under certain terms and conditions that I feel is completely wrong. I have applied for unemployment and have had no luck let alone no income since April 6th. I don’t know what I should do or what actions I should take. Prior to my furlough I was the only employee speaking up about the unsafe work conditions regarding PPE and was advised by other employees and staff that I should keep quiet as the sore thumb gets cut. I have both video and audio recording for what I can prove are numerous illegal situations ( working off the clock, speaking up about PPE, proving to management that non approved employees having access to my payroll/commission sheets etc..) I do not want to make this reading too long and not to short as to leave out any important details. To whom this may concern I appreciate your time in reading my request.
