They ‘awarded’ her the job about about 10 days ago and the hoops she has to jump through to get started and the difficult/poor communication has her second guessing her commitment. She could have collected CERB and likely made almost as much but she didn’t feel good about doing that... now she’s super frustrated and has no idea when/if she will “start” working. :-(
I bet none of your ‘prospective’ employees are suffering the same poor/lack of communication issues.
'Prospective' employees? I wish we had some of those. :(
We got two resumes for the first position we advertised for. One candidate missed her interview. The other had two interviews then 'Bent made an offer. After a weekend at the cottage, she said his office was great but she couldn't accept "at this time". I think the cottage reminded her that a summer on CERB would be more fun than being a health care worker during a pandemic.
We also have two employees on medical leave and those roles are even harder to fill because we don't know how long the jobs will last before the sick employees recover. Paid medical leave is available for longer during the pandemic too. Employees can receive up to 6 months of CERB followed by 13 weeks of EI sick leave.
If Syd were in Palgrave, we'd hire her tomorrow. Sorry to hear what she's going through.
