Customer Question

I am a commissioned employee, my contract states I must give 3 weeks notice before leaving the job. I gave three weeks notice, had a tumor removed from my neck and was given a week off of work. While I chose to waive this and work at a slower pace it appears this was not good enough for my employer. They terminated my employment on June 30, 2016 which was approximately two weeks before my actual end date.
I feel my reputation has been damaged because I was shut out of the system before I could update the files that were going to be transferred and I also lost out on money I earned as I could no longer enter my time into the system.

Provide you with termination pay?

Are you saying that you did work you did not get paid for?

What province are you in please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm in Alberta. I'm an independent adjuster. I was essentially dismissed before my 3 weeks notice was completed: So far I do not expect that they will pay me for my 3 weeks or the hours I was not able to log but they are essentialy uncooperative in answering my questions and want me to provide them file photos that I could have done myself had they not "canned" me.
