Ask your question about terminations, dismissals and lay offs and an employment lawyer in Ontario, BC or Alberta will answer in minutes
I am an employer, asking what "comparable hours " are according to Alberta employment standards, 2) am I obligated to give the employee back the same hours/days of operation prior to mat. leave considering our office has changed and evolved and 3)standard employment states there is no legislation saying 32-40hrs is guaranteed as full time hours?
I received a letter indicating that a complaint had been lodged against me about an incident that happened 10 days prior. The incident was not included in the letter. I was told by my boss (managing director) that they could not talk to me about the issue, that I could take what I needed to work from home for the remainder of the week and that I would be contacted by the person conducting the investigation. Almost 24 hours later, I received an email letter confirming that an external investigator will be contacting me about events that happened on said date - and attached was the company violence and harassment policy. The incident was not described. I replied with a request for a timeline of when to expect the call. I have an idea of what the incident was and am absolutely gutted by how they chose to address the issue. I worked with my boss - who witnessed the event and the other person who is also in a leadership position for several days afterwards and nothing was brought to my attention. I am trying to work from home but my role is heavy in admin and finance with hard copies of everything, filing and creating project folders. I have been working in the office full-time since Dec 2020 and this is the first time being asked to work from home. Aside from how the news of the investigation was handled, how realistic is my working from home in an office manager role?
I was dismissed without notice, severance or ROE from a position that the employer modified without consultation to an activity that was not originally agreed to. As a form of "help;p to me" after terminating me as he did, the employer now is insisting I sign an agreement to take an additional last 5 days of work as a form of help to me.
