After she took time off for what she claimed was an illness, a worker copied and pasted an old doctor‘s note with different dates, so Saskatchewan Telecommunications decided to fire her.

The woman, identified as “JV,” testified that in 2014 she suffered a series of misfortunate occurrences in her personal life, which precipitated her to forge a note. She worked at a retail location in Regina.

JV had worked for SaskTel from 2007, but on July 23, 2014, she was terminated.
