How long can a company keep you on reduced hours- especially if they aren't paying us with the emergency wage subsidy?

My name is David Vaughan and I'm an employment lawyer with Samfiru Tumarkin. Generally speaking, an employer's decision to reduce your hours and pay amounts to a constructive dismissal. And while employers may be given some leeway to do this in certain situations, you could challenge their decision to reduce your hours and pay at any time. Please contact our firm to discuss the details of your case in more detail.
