    • Critical Illness Leave (up to 37 weeks for a child or up to 17 weeks for adult family members)

    Additionally, under the Ontario Human Rights Code, employees may be eligible for additional time off to care for a child, spouse, or parent.

    Employers are prohibited from terminating an employee or otherwise penalizing the employee because s/he requires a job protected leave of absence. If you believe that you were penalized, dismissed or that your job is in jeopardy because you took a leave to care for a family member, speak with an employer lawyer. Contact JPAK Employment Lawyers today. We will review your case, your rights and the various options available to you, including financial compensation.
