Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear that this happened to you.
How long did you work there for?What province are you in please?
Then you are correct and you are entitled to one week's notice or pay in lieu of noticce.
So if you were dismissed on the spot you are owed the money.
You can contact the Employment Standards Branch and they will assist you (without a fee) in getting the week's pay.
Does that help as a starting point?
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.
You get either one week's notice or one week's pay but not both.
You are very welcome.
Please be sure to rate me before you leave the site so I can get credit for my work. The site will not pay me until you provide me with a positive rating.
Thanks and enjoy your weekend.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
