I’ve been working full time for a company for 2 years. I was not allowed to go to work in March 2020 due to COIVD and went on CERB. I was called back in June 2020 and went back as per the norm. As of last week, my company is changing my hours - but just myself and another coworker -not all who work in the department. There are 3 of us who work in the department. For the most part, the 3 of us function at the same tasks...albeit she is not as “strong” as the 2 of us whose hours are being changed, does not possess the experience and has only been there 6 months. I feel this is targeting and I don’t know what to do.
Hi, I would like to know information about providing a job description at my employer's request after 15 years of working for them. My question is do I have to provide that job description to them and if I refuse do I lose my severance pay? Ten years ago, the company was acquired by another company and just before that my position changed to senior management position. Even though they have a job description on file for the previous position I was never provided with a written job description for the senior position and I am one of the few that don’t have a new contract in place. Now they are going through some restructuring and they hired a management company to provide us with a survey related to the Roles & Responsibilities initiative. The Role Activity survey will serve as a tool to build an understanding of the work effort required (specifically time) to support each role's tasks/activities. This survey is given only to myself and a few other employees which I feel they ether want to change or get rid of.
Do I have a case for constructive dismissal. I was absorbed into my current employer due to a share purchase from where I was working. I had to travel to a different city for the work. I was given a particular duty. During my last 4 years, my duties have been added to, to a point that it is overwhelming and suffering. A new supervisor has been hired and the core of what I was doing and originally hired for is being moved to another employee. I have been told that they want me to go salary instead of hourly but I put in a significant number of fluctuating hours and don't want to work and not receive fair compensation. I have never been under a contract, and in fall was presented with one. I refused to sign due to issues with some of the content and now they want me to write my own contract as they want one in place. The bullying and harassment to train and hand over the core duty has caused me so much stress, that I am off work on stress leave. It is to the point I do not want to work for a company that I loved and gave 200% of myself to. This is only since the new supervisor.
My present employer has sold his business. The new employer will be buying half the company with my present employer owning the other half. Does my present employer still need to terminate my employment and pay severance?
I am working for a company for 26 years. The part of the company I work for is becoming an independent company. They have offered me a job at the same pay and benefits. As well as my years of service come over. Do I have to take this job? and if I do not, does my company have to pay me a severance package?
