I was let go after being praised about being the best worker. Finding the owners best friend was stealing from me for the majority of my employment. And I made it public to management he was stealing. With witnesses and requested resolution. After all that. I was accused of doing fraudulent transactions on the restaurants debit/credit machines. No evidence. No paper work. Just said i was being let go due to not being trustworthy. After working in the bar on my personal time building shelves and painting walls and putting up with the co worker stealing from me. And even being asked what I want done about the person stealing from me. As in they didn’t want to dismiss him. I felt beyond. Shadow of a doubt that I have the definition of constructive dismissal. Moved me all over the place on the schedule. And even took the good shifts I had away from me. And i was in aware as to why.
As an employee with a unionized company, do I have rights under the labor code of Ontario or am I limited to only what is agreed to by my union contract. I have concerns about ineffective representation from the union and find that if my concerns don't effect a committees representatives job, they have no interest in helping me but, want everyone to be on board or supportive of any grievance they may have. I have been listening to your radio and t.v programs lately and found them to be very informative.

Hi, I'm not sure if this topic is in your area of expertise, however, here goes. The company I work for is closing our local office and employees will be required to work from home. If this topic relates to your expertise I would like to know what the company should be providing employees in terms of compensation for using their homes. In my case and a few others, we are service technicians and as such will be keeping about $40,000 of test equipment at home when not in our vehicles. We are required to do at least 16 hours per week of administration work (reports) and attend online (via Skype) meetings as well as online training courses.
