Based on the information you provided, it is unlikely your employer would have grounds for "cause" to terminate you without pay. Further, if your employer was aware of your medical condition this could amount to a breach of the Human Rights Code by the employer. In any event, if you have been terminated either with or without cause, you should contact our office to speak with one of our employment lawyers so we can assess your termination entitlements.
