CUPE, Local 403, No: A-014/15, the arbitrator considered a complaint regarding the non-culpable termination of three Langley Township employees who were absent for a long time for long-term obstruction. . The employer terminated the employment relationship of the three workers due to a non-culpable absence due to their prolonged absence from work, without expecting them to return to their jobs in the foreseeable future. The dismissal of the employees had no influence on their right to pursue their disability rights in the long term. This meant, however, that employees were no longer entitled to certain other benefit plans, including MSP, extended health insurance, dental coverage and life insurance. The employer also took into account that there would be savings on premiums for benefit plans to which workers are no longer entitled.
