After quitting my previous job 2 months ago I have been fighting to obtain my Record of Employment and final paystub (my final pay however was received). I have made it very clear to my past employer that it is important that I receive it in a timely fashion as my wife is on disability, therefore my pay is subsidized and I need to provide these documents to them. I made two separate arrangements with my past employer to pick them up, and both times he failed to deliver them as promised. We then made arrangements for him to mail them, since I could not take an extended lunch during at my new join a THIRD time. They claimed they mailed them but they were sent to the incorrect address and returned. To make a long story short two months later, I am still attempting to have the documents sent to me. My old employer insists on acting like a child and is intentionally making excuses and delaying. Another previous employee is having a similar issue and he left the company even before I did. It is becoming very clear that this is some sort of retaliation for leaving the company. I contacted the Ministry of Labour and they informed me that they do not offer assistance in retrieving records of employment. Frustrated I e-mailed the owner of the franchise, who informed my the retrieving the documents is my responsibility. I disagree, it is THEIR responsibility to provide these documents, I should not have to run around attempting to retrieve them. I do not believe they were ever mailed, all of my previous paystubs have my correct address; so how could the print the wrong street this time? I am soooo frustrated, I don't know what I am supposed to do. Any advice would be appreciated.
