Hello, I just realized that this was a miscategorized question. You were routed to the U.S. section when it's apparent you're Canadian. My apologies. Let me advise our moderators so they can get you switched over.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Are you asking if an employee can be dismissed while on sick leave?
