Apparently the board approved his vacation. News is saying it's not clear whether the board knew of his travel plans to go to Dominican, but obviously the president of the hospital knew, so what are the chances that the board DIDN'T know? (Word spreads!) I'd say close to zero chance. So they approve his vacation, and then fire him? And apparently it's also not clear whether he was fired or quit? Seems to me that considering the amount to be paid out to him, it would have been better to keep him working for that same amount of money, instead of paying TWO people, one to stay home and one to actually work the job. Then how about if they... (who???) wrote him up, and kept it in his personnel file, so they could fire him without paying severance, if he got into more bad moves down the road. If employees have been told they HAVE to work in covid infested nursing homes as part of their hospital duties, and have been told they're not allowed to take their earned vacation, then why would the board figure the CEO was entitled to take time off during a provincial/national/world health crisis? The whole board should be fired for approving it. imo. I'm also wondering where Ontario is getting this boat load of money lately? There's not enough money to pay less-than-fulltime staff for time off if they must quarantine if exposed to this virus, or even if they get sick with it, but apparently there are millions available to blow on a CEO who's not going to even be working for his money, because he took an approved vacation. Scapegoat city.
