Dear tutor,

I'm working on my course of Employment Law. The topic is

employment relationship in Canada. I'm confused about this case. I would appreciate your help.

Jake, 45 years old, worked for Management Co. for 15 years in a non-union position. He worked his way up from office assistant to manager of the Human Resources Department. He has acquired over the course of his employment his Human Resources Management Certificate and his Bachelor of Business Degree in his spare time. His performance reviews have been excellent, and his past supervisors speak highly of his work ethic and communication skills.

Jake signed a new employment contract when he was promoted to his manager position. The contract outlined his work duties and responsibilities, hours of work, salary and benefits, overtime pay, bonus structure, confidentiality clauses, and termination clauses by employer and employee.

Jake underwent a serious, necessary medical procedure that required him to take a six-week leave which was funded by his work benefits. Upon his return to work, Jake's boss had filled his position and offered him an alternate position with a significant reduction in responsibilities and a 30% reduction in pay.

The three questions your paper must answer are:

   1. What employment violations has the employer committed, if any?

   2. What legal options does the Jake have?

   3. In your opinion, how should the employer have handled this situation?
