Answer: My name is David Vaughan and I am an employment lawyer with Samfiru Tumarkin. Your employer should have have terminated your employment due to your need to miss work in these circumstances. In doing so, the employer has likely violated your human rights and should owe you severance pay. Please visit the Severance Calculator (https://www.severancepaycalculator.com/) for an estimate of your severance entitlements and contact our firm to discuss the matter in more detail.
