John is a labourer who we hired two months ago. He has been difficult from day one and is not the right fit for our team. Two days ago, I spoke with his direct supervisor and we made the decision to terminate his employment on Friday. Yesterday however, he did not attend work and provided a note from his physician saying he was on a medical leave of absence due to a disability for the next two weeks. Can we fire him or will it be a violation of his human rights?
Our employee, Robert, has worked for us for two years. Robert is black and his supervisor, Kyle, iswhite.Recently therehasbeentensionin the workplace. Robert brought a complaint to human resources alleging that Kyle is targeting him because of his colour. We retained an outside investigator who spent three weeks looking into the allegations. It was determined that Robert’s allegations were unfounded, although made in good faith. We cannot allow loose allegations like this that cause disruption in the workplace.Our management team would like to fire Robert. Canwe do that?
