Ask your question about terminations, dismissals and lay offs and an Ontario employment lawyer will answer in minutes
I have been working for a small store (owner and two employees including myself) since May. Doing approximately 30 hours a week.
I never signed a contract but was told it was for four days a week. The owner is now selling the shop but with a not very definite timeline. The new potential owner (a relative) keeps coming In and is keen to replace me.
After much questioning I have been told my job will probably go around end of November.
My question is, am I entitled to anything? She will just pay me the hours I’ve worked and no more. Also would I qualify for unemployment benefit under these circumstances.
It’s not a matter of affordability for the owner she is very wealthy and still owns another store in another party of Ontario.
