Stanley Jack worked for 10 years at Maritime Paper Products in Dartmouth, N.S., when on Fri- day, Jan. 5, 2018, he called in sick. The following Monday, Jack reported back at the plant. When his supervisor asked for a note explain- ing the absence on Jan. 5, Jack said he didn't have a doctor's note, so he was sent home. The next day, he was back at work with a doctor's note. However, contrary to company policy, the note was prepared on Jan. 8, not Jan. 5, which is when Jack should have seen the physician.
