Posting this for someone else, couldn't find pertinent info on the Alberta labour site.
Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you would have some insight in a situation I'm going through at work.
I'll try to make this very brief: in September I made the decision to go back to school. I told my managers that, and for the most part they scheduled me around my school hours. Everything seemed ok.
When I went onto my practicum, they reduced my hours to part time. I said "oh well, I can handle that for a while". For the last 2 weeks of practicum, they gave me no hours at all, and said they just can't "work out the schedule", whatever that actually means. Even though I've since finished my practicum, which was their reason for reducing my hours, I still haven't been in the schedule at all for some 3 weeks now.
They said clearly that I'm still with the company, however. They also say they have no idea when I'll get hours again, and if I'm reading the situation correctly, I'm essentially out of a job -- I just never was actually fired or laid off. Which doesn't seem legal.
What are my options in this situation? I have/had been working for them full time for 3 years. At this point, I haven't had shifts in close to a month. What do I do...? I plan on calling the labor board/Employment Standards, but since it's the weekend and I can't do that right now, I was hoping to get some insight from you guys.
