The law is that you can be dismissed while on sick leave or under a WCB claim but you cannot be dismissed because of the claim or leave. That would be unlawful and discrimination. As well, the employer has a duty to provide you with reasonable accommodations unless doing so would cause the employer to undergo undue hardship. If the employer fails to accommodate you then this is a case of discrimination on the basis of disability and you can file a complaint with the Human Rights Commission. So it sounds like you should be speaking to the Human Rights Commission this week about filing a claim and also you should contact Employment Standards as it looks like you were dismissed for putting in a WCB claim which is clearly unlawful. Then before deciding how to proceed you should have a face to face consultation 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-***-***-**** or***-***-**** in Calgary

there were may harassment issues in the work place. I am gay and there was inuendo and derogatory statements all of the time. Will I receive payment from WCB or will this stop because I have been terminated.
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 2 years ago
You should still receive WCB. Than add this discrimination to your complaint or lawsuit.

I also received letters from my doctor for all of my work absences. Should I be paid for my time missed due to pain?
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 2 years ago
WCB should be compensating you for this.

As I thought.
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 2 years ago
Yes you understand the law I think so you now have to take steps to enforce your rights.

WCB now wants me to participate in a meeting with my x employer on Friday. I was terminated and I don't understand why they want this to happen. They are also recommending a cortizone shot in my shoulder tomorrow. I was told if I don't take the shot and go to this meeting they will not pay me. I am not thrilled about cortisone and am wondering if they can hold me hostage and not pay me if I refuse to put that substance in my body. This process is very adversarial and does not give me the right to chose for my body and my mind.
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 2 years ago
I suggest that you immediately either consult with an employment lawyer in your city face to face, or else contact the office of the appeals adviser. 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-***-***-**** or***-***-**** in Calgary Here is a link to the contact information you will need for the appeals adviser:http://www.wcb.ab.ca/public/contact.asp?panel=cp_appeals_adv
