I do understand that I am not covered by the act and that I am not entitled to paid overtime.
However, as from my working hours - I already work 16 more than minimum and I'm being asked for more.
I would just like to know whether my employer can degrade or fire me because Im contributing only 16 h overtime. After all, I am not breaking the contract and performing all my duties.
What is more, I have been given a letter from doctor that I should be on light duty as Im prearing for a heart surgery, which was ignored.
Yes, I am entitled to the medical leave which I am going to use for the hospitalization. Now I was only advised to be on light duty and the doctor prepared the letter for my HR.
Can they fire me, even though Im following the contract?
