I work at Toyota Motor manufacturing canada, had surgery which was non occupational, was on short term disability, it ran out and was denied long term cause I saw a doctor 10 days before a 90 day policy was up. Now they won't give me any modified work and are making me collect with, which will not last long enough till I'm healed or cover my bills?
Province/Territory relating to question: Ontario
I have had doctors fill out function ability forms to try and get me on modified. And they don't want me to go back till I'm 100%,
They are have duty to accommodate you.
If they do not it's discrimination.
The only exception if where they would suffer undue hardship as a result of making the accommodations.
If you are in a union I suggest seeking their help at once.
If you are not then you may need to consider consulting with an employment lawyer.
You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free. The number is: 1-800-268-8326 or XXX-XXX-XXXX (within the GTA)
