Long story short, I have been working at my Small business for 4 years now.


My boss thinks he can push the boundaries because we are small business, which maybe he can. Recently I was scheduled to work on a certain day, I asked if I could come in on another day and the day I was originally working would get covered(which it did).

The boss said yes, however it would be considered a sick day.

My worries about the situation from what has been going on is, he has been doing his "best" to rack up my maximum amount of sick days to get me terminated.


However I found this law and was wondering if it applies here: "Employees have the right to request changes to their schedule or location after 3 months of employment without fear of retribution."

I am lawyer by profession and have practiced law in my country for some 19 years but closed to work with an NGO for some years now.

I have a daughter studying in US and I want to move to Canada to work close to her and also have her siblings study here.

All my children have been to a mission school that uses American based curriculum.

While working with this NGO, I do mediation to support my family.

I am an accredited mediator and I got my Australian accreditation in 2014 through training conducted by Australian Mediation Association.

Right now I am looking to work as a mediation.

In my country, I practice as a mediator under Mediation Pacific.

Thank you for considering my request.
