An Alberta arbitrator has upheld the dismissal of a worker for taking long breaks while submitting time sheets reporting full hours worked.
Fujitec Canada is a manufacturer of elevators and escalators based in Toronto. It has a location in Calgary, where it was involved in a construction project in the city’s Stampede Park in 2022.
The worker was employed as an elevator mechanic at the Stampede Park project site. All workers at the site were required to enter and exit the site through two electronic turnstiles recording the times of entry and exit. There were five other gates, but these were only for vehicles delivering construction materials.
