I have been working in the same place for about 5 years lately it has been so slow that I'm getting like 20 hours a week which is not good. I'm forced to have to quit because of that situation and the fact that I don't want to quit because I truly love my job. Is there any severance that I should get? I'm not sure how this all works. Usually I work 40 to 60 hours a week
I am in sales and the owner raised some concerns regarding targets about 3-4 weeks ago but elected not to sign a performance review, only go thru the motions of it. No improvement plan was initiated or signed. Then I was terminated after 7 months due to organizational restructuring and given 3 weeks severance. However, I was lured to this company after 10+ years at my prior employer. Am I entitled to more severance?
Hello, I am the HR Manager for the company. It is a family run business. I just started last week as they never had a HR department before. My question for you is that employees who are salaried, that come late consistently, can they have deductions in their pay? is that legal? Also for sick days, we know that in ontario, employees can get up to 3 unpaid sick days full time or part time employees, does this include hourly employees as well? what happens if they take the 3 days already and then what about the 4th? how do i create a policy based on this?
Am I required to pay an employee in ontario to be on call even if they don't come into work or get a call? They need to be available in the even their is a call but they don't necessarily take calls everyday.
Is it ok to go to outside council to have an employment contract drawn up, or do we have to use the firm representing us for other items? The Board of Directors needs an employment contract for a specific employee, has legal council already, but that council works closely with the employee in question, so it feels like a potential conflict to have them write this contract. (yes, the person is already employed, with no written contract in place) Don't want to proceed though, if there is an obligation to that firm. thanks
