My employer requires me to work on my scheduled days off on occasion. I often do, but occasionally can't due to other commitments. They've written me up for these and threaten further discipline, including discharge for cause. Can they do this? Would it amount to cause?
We are a unionized elevator service company. One of our clients requires a criminal background check prior to allowing our employee to access their facility. The facility is a secure location. Nowhere in the collective agreement does it prohibit this. Is the employee within his rights to refuse this even though it is part of his duties?
I took a leave of absence which was also suggested by my employer for stress leave. Total time off has been 12 weeks. Was able to return to work today June 24th advise to my employer I would be returning they agreed. I had sent my letter from the doctors saying I was good to go for the 24th. Message was received Friday evening from my employer asking me to return to D corporate office instead of the dispatch office 4th June 24th 8:30 in the morning. At that point I assumed there was going to be an issue and that the possibility of them letting me go was there due to the location for me to come to. When I went into the office this morning at the request of time I was advised that my appointment was be terminated immediately. The reason for that being they did not feel I should handle the additional worker that they had added on to this position. I did receive severance package I wanted to know what I was entitled to to compare to what I was given before I signed any papers from my employer I worked for this company between 10 and 11 years and is the trucking industry third-party logistics company there is no Union and they are over 20 million dollar annual payroll.
