My 18 year old son worked seasonally for a garden nursery for four months last year and was just hired on again in March 2018 to work for the summer season. He worked twelve shifts, and then during one shift his supervisor had him lifting very heavy rocks out of bins and onto tables (fully bending over so not able to lift safely or properly). He sustained a groin injury. He went to emergency and had ultrasound. Before the results were obtained (turned out to be just a pulled muscle), he presented his employer with a doctor's note as he had to miss four shifts to recuperate. Upon returning to work, he received a letter indicating that due to a shortage of work he would be laid off from seasonal employment. Do we seem to be justified to pursue this as a wrongful dismissal?
I was terminated after 1 year given 1month severence. Employer knew I had mental health issue never told any issue with performance last performance was exceeds expectations next evaluation by a new boss due next week.
After a settlement hearing offer is agreed upon and accepted. How long before settlement payment must be made.
If I incriminated myself over an act that resulted in a final outcome of termination with cause, do I have any leg to stand on based on the fact it was not a deliberate process to get reinstated or the penalty reduced?
