Frequently Asked Questions About Wrongful Dismissal
Does my employer need to accommodate my disability?
Employees with disabilities have the right to be provided with the equipment, services or devices that allow them to do their job. Employers are required to accommodate employees with disabilities up to the point that it would cause undue hardship.
Is my employer required to give me time off for holy days?
Employers should try to accommodate time off requests for employees’ religious holy days. This does not guarantee that every holy day related time off requested will be granted. Unless it would cause undue hardship, an employer does have a duty to accommodate an employee’s creed. If you feel your employer is not doing this, it is important to protect your rights and consult with a human rights employment lawyer.
Can my employer ask me to take a drug test?
Your employer should not be asking you to take a test for drug or alcohol use unless it is directly connected to your job. There are some circumstances where it may be reasonable for an employer to ask this of you. If you have a disability, such as former dependence on drugs or alcohol, your employer cannot discriminate against you based on this.
