I was fired after I made a mistake on the debit machine in regard to charging someone less than what I was supposed to, by mistake. I was told 3 times about the mistake I had been making which I ended up explaining to my boss that it had been due to the previous machine that I was so used to. We fixed the issue and I accidentally made a fatal mistake that ended up costing me my job. I have severe anxiety disorder and mild depression, which my boss had been informed of on multiple occasions. My severe anxiety disorder often causes me to have issues where I often forget what I have done due to high-stress situations. In addition, I had offered to pay for the mistakes that I had made and my boss had refused my efforts to make up for my mistakes. He fired me over the phone after I had finished my shift out of nowhere. Am I entitled to severance? What should I do in this situation?
I had a workplace injury on my right knee that has required two surgery’s. On the day that a return to work meeting with employer and wsib was scheduled my employer called me to cancel meeting and proceeded to say that I was terminated. Once wsib found out they contacted my employer and educated them on the consequences in doing this. Now the employer does not want to terminate and has offered a job that is a demotion and a 40 percent decrease in pay. Wsib wants me to take the position. I do not plan on returning to an employer that terminated over the phone nor would I accept this demotion. In need of advice on what to do.
I am working in a financial institution for number of years, recently under investigation for transferring some points to a 3rd party loyalty program to my personal account. Employer tracked my IP address for last two years when i log-in my own bank account. The IP address from online banking matches with the IP address when i registered loyalty program. The monetary damage to employer is less than $500 CAD. Can my employer use personal info provided by 3rd party program provider (name, address, email and IP address) to accuse me in this case?
I had surgery last year for colon cancer while on STD at the end of my 6 months on I received call from my manager that I have been terminated because my STD had expired. Also, that I wasn't entitled to severance pay. I worked for this for 32 years without any infractions and I am 62yrs old. I didn't sign anything, simply receive a call from my manager asking for my cell phone, laptop and I D badge back. I suspect my rights were violated but I don't know law. Please advise me and thanks in advance.
