Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you for your question.
I am sorry but I cannot speak to you on the telephone. I know the site offers this service but the site is based in the US. In Canada the rules of my law society prohibit me from speaking to you on the telephone as you are not my client.
I can only speak to you by posting up and back over this site.
What will happen is that he will have to pay back the short-term disability and he will likely lose his job.It is clearly not acceptable to tell one company that you are unable to work, collect short-term disability benefits through them, and then work for another company.It is not that he was lying but he did not tell what he was doing and he certainly could not have gone off on sick leave and work for someone else and still receive disability benefits.Does that answer your question?
Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
Help with what?And has he told them the truth?Has he offered to pay back the STD benefits?
There is no need to resign as he is no further ahead than if he is dismissed.
Rather, he should get a doctor's note explaining that he could work in Ontario and why and why he could not work for them at that point in time.
And he should say he wants to explain what happened and will pay back the STD benefits if they want but he is also reminding them that from the start he said he didn't want to collect them so there is no deception here.
I hope this works out.
Have a lovely weekend!
And please don't forget to rate me before you leave the site so that I can receive credit for my work.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
