Not supportive of family medical leave
Program Assistant (Former Employee) – Brock, ON – 16 October 2019
I took a 7 week stress leave due to personal medical issues as well as a medical issue with my daughter-The work atmosphere at the CCD office where I was employed had gone through so many changes, I could barely keep a grip on the over abundance of workload I was continuing to have put on me. I felt like I was struggling to stay above water. I was never one to complain or leave coworkers (in my case-one) without support, but I was at the end of my rope. I was sick of the unfairness and lack of management care. This rose through all ranks. When I returned to my position, all of my work and personal possessions had been removed from my office and I was left feeling totally unworthy as an employee. Needless to say I resigned almost immediately. During my exit interview the new HR employee told me my leave was “quite a long time off”, In my opinion, not only was that unprofessional of her in her position, but also a blatant disregard of a major element of what CCD is to stand for-Supporting others.
