Three registered nurses who worked at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Hospital requested the employer convert vacation leaves to sick time off after each experienced health problems.

Sara Lee scheduled a four-week vacation to begin April 28, 2015, but the day before she went to her doctor after experiencing swelling in her feet. 

She was scheduled to take a maternity leave after her vacation.
