I was given a suspension letter for the period November 15-17th, however I was called into work November 15th and 16th. What do I do?
i noticed that my job was posted on a job post web site without my knowledge that I was being considered for dismissal. The job description was hidden under an abstruse and elusive name for the company that I work for. The job posting was brought to my attention by someone who was aware of this information. As I read further, I happen to notice that the job posting consisted of a 'verbatim' description of a requested job description that I was aked to hand in under the premise that we were going to review and adjust my growing responsibilities that were beginning to overwhelm me. I was under the impression that this was going to work out in my favour. I submitted this document that I created from my personal computer the day before I left for a pre-booked unpaid vacation to Cuba. I booked this in February. Upon my return, coincidentally I was struck with a severe salmonella bacteria infection and was off for the following week upon the direction of my doctor because it is very contagious and I had a very severe case. I brought in all of the requested medical documents for my return to work requested by HR. After I saw the posting, I questioned HR who denied it and only after she realized that I knew what I was talking about, she back tracked and admitted that there was one and expressed concerns about my attendance and surmised that it was stressed related and perhaps that was why I was absent. Is this something that I should worry about?
I slipped and hurt my knee in the lumber yard where I work due to ice and then I filed a wsib as I am supposed to do. They fired me that same day at end of day and since I was a week and a half short of my 3 months and they wrote down they fired me for being inadequate on the paper. They never mentioned that there was a problem prior.
