In Ontario, a minor is anyone under the age of 18. Minors are not legally responsible for some things that they do. For example, you usually can’t enforce a contract against a minor to collect money from them.
This is a criminal offence. You can be charged with mischief if you intentionally:
- destroy or damage property
- render property useless, inoperative or ineffective
- prevent the lawful use, enjoyment or operation of property, or
- interfere with the lawful use, enjoyment or operation of property
You don't get Employment Insurance (EI) benefits if you were fired because of misconduct.
Misconduct usually means doing something wrong on purpose. It's more than not being able to do the job well. Here are some examples that might be misconduct:
- threatening or violent behaviour
- destroying company property on purpose
- being late or away from work without permission
- disobeying an order from your employer
Your employer might be wrong about what the law says is misconduct. So, it's a good idea to apply for EI even if you were fired.

Modified work means that your employer makes changes to your duties or your workplace because your injury prevents you from doing some parts of your regular job. This includes:
- working in a different job or different area of your workplace
- doing parts of your job and having someone help with the parts you can’t do
- taking breaks or working different hours than you normally would
