Just thought I'd clear something up...
At least in the Ontario Government, if the Gov wants to fire you and they have cause, you will be losing your job. You can make it expensive for the Gov, and you can drag out settlement board grievances for a long time... but at the end of the day, you will lose your job.
Also, if you're fired because of something of extremely dubious moral fibre, the Government WILL spend a lot of money on lawyers just to make sure you don't get a cent in settlement, on moral grounds alone.
I know a lot of you have a vision of the OPS like it was back in the mid-80's to early-90s stuck in your head and haven't updated in years... but I'll tell you it's not as hard to get fired from the Government as a lot of people seem to think.
Also, FYI, the OPS just canned 2,500 employees and they're canning another 2,500 in the next two or three years. So yea, job security isn't 100% anymore either. I'm also guessing they're the only employer in the province that can cut 5,000 jobs and have the public as a whole cheer about it.
Some of you really need to update your information.
