Customer Question

Second opinion] I have been working for the same company for 12 years,as a cashier. I have had the same availability for at least 8 of these years. Now my manager says I have to scan items faster or I will no longer be a cashier. Another co manager and assistant manager had a meeting with me last week and told me I had to change my availability. First I had 12 weeks to make a decision, then it was 8 weeks. I asked about changing positions from being a cashier to working on the floor. I was told that wasn't possible as they were having the same conversation with everyone. They gave me a letter which has my named spelled wrong ,,the co manager and assistant manager's names are ***** ***** on the letter. The store manager's name is ***** ***** with a space for him to sign it. Which he did not do.In the letter it says I have 8 weeks to make a decision,but the date is less than 4 weeks from the day we had the meeting.It also says that I could be scheduled less hours,move to to a different position, and be moved to part time status and lose my benefits.I also have a medical note for modified duties and it is not being honored, Can they do this?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Edmonton Alberta

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Full time

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am not sure. I feel I am being bullied, harrased and intimidated
