An employee who returns from pregnancy leave or parental leave can be put into a new job so long as that new job is comparable or better, in all key respects, to the job that he or she had before he or she left on leave.
Where there is a written agreement explicitly stipulating that a worker is an independent contractor, and where he or she is self-incorporated and has a valid GST number issued by Revenue Canada, then he or she is not an employee, and hence neither subject to statutory deductions nor entitled to employee entitlements like vacation pay, overtime pay and severance pay.
When an employee signs an employment agreement after, rather than before, he or she arrives at the office for his or her first day of work, nothing in that agreement will be legally enforceable against him or her.
An employee can usually be terminated once he or she has been continuously absent on disability leave for more than 2 years.
