Title: mediation
Body:

In mediation, a worker and an employer meet with someone called a mediator. The mediator tries to help them find a solution that they agree on. The mediator is neutral, which means they don't take the side of the worker or the employer.

If the mediation process works, the worker and the employer make an agreement. This means they won't need to have a hearing at a court or tribunal, where a judge or adjudicator would decide for them.

Title: misconduct
Body:

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.

Title: modified work
Body:

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
