Sick Leave Benefits Canceled Due to Facebook Photos
Nov. 22: A Québec worker was on sick leave after being diagnosed with major depression. However, the worker posted photos of herself on Facebook showing her at a Chippendales bar show, birthday party and on vacation. An insurance agent saw the photos and cancelled her sick leave benefits, contending that the photos are evidence the worker is no longer depressed. She’s trying to get her benefits reinstated, claiming her doctor told her to try to have some fun.
