Below are some pointers to assist you in dealing with such situations. Think about what is important to you in the situation.

Remember that the Federal Centre is there to assist you in working through your options.

What You Should Know About The Ontario Employment Standards Act
Are you covered by the Ontario Employment Standards Act? The Employment Standards Act, 2000 (ESA) sets out minimum terms of employment. It sets out rights of employees and requirements that apply to employers for most Ontario workplaces. The ESA applies to most employers and employees in Ontario but it does not apply to all employers and employees. Some employees and their employers are exempt from (that is, not covered by) all, or some parts of the ESA, and some are subject to special rules. This can be confusing, but you can find out if your job is covered and to what extent.

Toastmasters International. An excellent organization dedicated to helping you practice the art of thinking, speaking and meeting, efficiently, clearly and productively. There are chapters everywhere, and with good reason. It's a great investment in your time.

Why to Join Toastmasters? To achieve anything in life, you must first be able to communicate your needs and desires to yourself and then to others. If you do not know how to do this, you will not achieve your goals, gain understanding or cooperation from others.You will not be able to bring your business or organization to the potential it can achieve. Can you picture the place you want to be? See if you can't realize the power of mastery of communication to get you there. Know the power of words to create a win/win environment and to build trust with people and increase co-operation. Learn about disasters that come from assumptions. Realize the influence of perceptions, paralanguage (tone) and body language.
Learn tools to make you a master communicator.

Here are a few quotes of inspiration and some food for thought about work and life ... CARPE DIEM (seize the day)

"Networking is more than meeting the right people. It's about connecting with their purpose and helping them achieve their goals. It's about connectin them with their success."

  • Craig Elias: Canada's Mr. Networking
  • "So you ask “what can I do to build confidence in myself”? Start by discovering who you are (your Personal Brand), which will allow you to understand what you need to do in order to gain this confidence you seek. Once discovered, it is all about repetition, through telling yourself that you are unique and “you have nothing to lose.” Saying this will help you be more outgoing, which translates into confidence."

  • Dan Schawbel
  • "Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives. Unfortunately most of us are completely unaware of this fact and we do not monitor our thoughts with the care needed so that we can create in our lives the results we say we want. Since the great majority of people do not feel worthy and deserving of abundant good fortune, radiant good health and total success in all areas of their lives that overriding thought pattern controls the results people get. The first order of business of anyone who wants to enjoy success in all areas of his or her life is to take charge of the internal dialogue they have and only think, say and behave in manner consistent with the results they truly desire. - Sidney Madwed

    "You cannot escape the results of your thoughts. Whatever your present environment may be, you will fall, remain or rise with your thoughts, your vision, your ideal. You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration." - James Lane Allen

    "In football you always get judged on your last game. Whoever you are, or how amazing you are, it's the last game that everyone has seen." - Thierry Henry

    "80% of the stuff you get you are never going to need again. 20% you do need, and you need to prioritize its importance."

  • Julie Mahan
  • "It takes half your life before you discover life is a do-it-yourself project." - Napoleon Hill

    "The only thing that doesn't change is change itself." - Heraclitus (You can't step into the same river twice, the old Greek said, because the water keeps moving. - If you're clinging to your old reliable tools, you're not just standing still, you're actually moving backwards from the point of view of those who are moving on with the river of technological change.)

    "The secret of man's success resides in his insight into the moods of people, and his tact in dealing with them." - J. G. Holland

    "To put distance between you and your competition, you must become more VALUABLE... not just more PRODUCTIVE."

  • E. R. Haas
  • "When one door closes another door opens; but we do often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us." - Alexander Graham Bell

    "Successful people are not necessary smarter than anyone else, they are simply more effective."

  • Ross Mackay
  • "You'll never achieve real success unless you like what you're doing."

  • Dale Carnegie
