PM #40065782 AN ONTARIO worker's contin- ued dishonesty over damage he caused to his employer's property was just cause to terminate his employment, according to an ar- bitrator. The worker was a facilities maintenance attendant for Loyal- ist Township in eastern Ontario, initially hired in June 2000. The township had a policy requiring "complete reporting of accident and incidents involving town- ship staff and/or township equip- ment." Rules set down Ontario nurses get clarification on PPE rules after arbitrator decision AN ONTARIO worker's stress after a disagree- ment with his manager was a legitimate illness de- serving of sick days under the collective agreement, an arbitrator has ruled. Usman Murtaza was a project manager at the In- dependent Electricity Operator (IESO), a Crown corporation that operates the electricity market in Ontario. In September 2017, Murtaza was trans- ferred to a unit with a different manager. The new manager soon had issues with Mur- taza's job performance and his relationships with co-workers. On Jan. 30, 2018, Murtaza had an argu- ment with the manager and the manager told him she wasn't satisfied with his performance. Two days later, Murtaza emailed his manager to say he was sick and was taking the day off. A note said that his doctor had advised him to rest and take off work until Feb. 19. The collective agreement had a sick-leave plan that granted employees 23 days of sick leave each SENIORS HOUSING Eagle Hill Foundation Two Hills, Alta.
