I was fired after I called in saying I would need 2 days off due to dislocating my arm I said I would be in to give a doctors note which I did and the note stated I needed two days off when I arrived I was sat down and told that they needed the shifts covered either way and that they didn't think I should come back because of it even though I had the note stating I would be fine to return after 2 days , I've been working there for about 5 or 6 months so I was not on any sort of probation. My question is is this wrongful dismissal?
I was terminated meanwhile on probation. The reason forr the termination was because I was not available for training. I was available but was not contacted.
I was let go as part of the company downsizing, and a couple months later found out that my old position was filled externally. Is this grounds for a wrongful dismissal?
Because of harassment from my boss I will quit my job soon. I was told if I get fired, do not sign any document-take it to a lawyer first. 2 questions: 1. if I quit and provide a letter of resignation, is there anything that I should not sign...I ask because I understand this situation is called a 'constructive dismissal' so I don't want to limit any settlement I can get. 2. though I quit, can I apply for EI - my research into EI lists various reasons for 'voluntary Leaving Employment' in section 6 of the Digest of benefit Entitlement Principles. 3. How do you charge for your services - hr fee or % of overall settlement NB: I have been w/ this employer for 15 months, full benefits, $48K/annual Thanks, Shelly
