To All Target Employees:
We have been receiving a large volume of calls from team members about availability and scheduling concerns, and other day-to-day issues at store level. Please note that all questions and concerns about daily operational matters including scheduling and availability, taking sick days or statutory leaves of absence, should be brought to your ETL-HR for resolution. Likewise, any questions about your “average weekly hours” and your pay over the statutory notice period should first be raised internally with Target through your ETL-HR or through Canada.FieldHRProcess.Team@target.com.
Koskie Minsky is not in a position to mediate or resolve disputes at store level arising out of operational matters. We also do not have access to individual team member data used to calculate payments to team members over the statutory notice period. Our mandate is to represent all Target employees on issues affecting them in the insolvency proceedings, including those related to the Employee Trust and related Claims Process.
Where possible, please follow the normal policies and procedures to resolve all workplace matters. If you face any employment consequences as a result of your actions, such as discipline or termination, or are asked to sign an acknowledgment that you have voluntarily resigned, you should feel free to contact us. If you do not receive satisfactory answers to your questions about your weekly average earnings, and/or you believe there is an error in the calculations, please contact us and we will assist you with next steps.
