Show Notes

  • An employee asked to return to the office despite childcare needs: Employees are obligated to try and find all possible childcare options. Despite this, employees who have no possible alternatives to childcare must be accommodated by their employer. Employers must accommodate employees based on family status.
  • Terminated without cause next steps for employees: For many employees, terminations can be traumatic. It is important for employees who have been terminated without cause to seek legal advice in order to ensure their rights have been protected and do not feel pressured to sign agreements, particularly regarding severance entitlements.
  • Recruited by a new employer and then let go: In some cases, if an employee has been recruited by a new company and let go early into the new position, their severance will be based on previous years of service. It is important for employees to look closely at their employment agreements to determine whether or not they have agreed to probation periods and more.
