I am currently waiting for Service Canada to make a decision to see if I am approved to receive the money, that I was already approved to receive 3 weeks prior of this year.
I was recently let go from a job I worked for 2 1/2 weeks after being laid off from my previous job 3 weeks prior. I was NOT let go due to poor attendance or because I had a poor work ethic. I was hired as a Lead Hand Supervisor occupational health and safety to lead and have the workers follow HACCP/SOP. rules.
There is 6 owners (Mother & Father) (Daughter & Husband) (Son & Wife) "Never met the (Mother & Father) " they are all family and they are all on 2 different pages, as to what they want me to do.
2 owners ("Daughter & Husband") Who don't care about cross contamination or safety and there is so much of it going on there, But the other 2 owners (Son & Wife) do care but don't have any say. (that's what it seems like),
It was like this 2 barrels of ranch dip has been in the fridge for a long time (I was told) and the oil in the dip was at the top of the barrel i ask the manger what to do with it he told me to take it to the batch mixers and mix it in with the new one that is being made .
I told him that this ranch is bad and ask how can you do that HE JUST LOOKED AT ME
So what I also seen was that they make a Peanut BBQ sauce and it is chunky when they make it, It goes all over the place and the contamination is everywhere and no one does anything about it this is a Major Food Allergen, Next when they are done they wash the machine down with just hot water and not sanitizing it then make a juice that's for a daycare.
So I told the owners about it and also complained about my hours I had to work 191 hours in 2 1/2 weeks I told the plaint supervisor also that I can't work on sat no-more, The next day I was told that I am are being dismissed there was no Misconduct on my part in anyway was never given a warning or written up for anything and was told by (Son & Wife) that I have been doing a Great job.
I am just a honest person that took the wrong job.
all I tried to do was my job also in the 2 1/2 weeks I was there the production manager dismissed 3 other people and 1 was there for 5 years so I know the storeys they can make up about people leaving.
It so hard to work for a company that has family problems
I didn't expect a huge wait because I was told by Service Canada that my old claim would just be re-open it's now 3 weeks and 2 day I was told that I would NOT be waiting a 2 week wait time because i just did on my last claim that was only 2 1/2 weeks ago so they told me it will just be re-open. I had rent due on December 1st with no way to pay it and like the rest of us I live paycheck to pay paycheck in the last 3 weeks I had NO MONEY and I am now going on 4.
The 28 day thing is a sham because if you have not herd a response within 3 weeks start calling because if you don't it will take longer then 28 days it will talk 2 more weeks to get a hold of a person in the upper management to talk to and fix it
I received an ROE from this last employer that i gave to Service Canada . After all, I am just hoping to get money from an old claim, not to create a new claim. So, now it's 7:00am and I've been up all night thinking and cant sleep. I have to go see what the problem is. If they say it's not going to be done by December 15st for one reason or another, then I will default on my lease because I can't possibly pay my rent on TOP of that It's almost Christmas and this is really hard on me right now like very bad.
I have called Service Canada 100 times and only got a hold of them 5 times and was told something different every time I am now at the Escalation Stage
