I was a peer support worker and twice I was sent off work because my manager deemed me unwell this was based on the views of other staff so unprofessional.... Put me right into financial crisis and ecsaserbated my already mental health issues.... There was no offer of accommodation before I was sent off....I would have been alright if I had continued working but having to jump through hoops and advocate for myself with social services and employment insurance when I was at that point bet unwell....the Union just said get your doctor to send you back to work but remember they'll 'can you" of you don't fulfill the requirements of the job.....I have never fully recovered from that experience..... This was in CMHA HKPR out of Peterborough On..
. Again I probably could have fought this with the human rights commission but that requires time sand energy which at that point I didn't have sand ended up hospitalized....where I ran into fellow staff who were coming into to run groups.....I have never worked for an agency that discriminates against their employees because they may have mild depression......
CMHA (HR) in Thunder Bay discriminates against older/long time employees and dismisses them without just cause. The company is toxic with many lawyer investigations
Management is horrible
Poor, unqualified management.
Management. Toxic work place ("old boys club" and gossip). No advancement potential.
The distance to get to work and salary
Left. Management was poor. High turnover.
Low pay, no room to advance
