Approved Vacation or Leave of Absence
We have received a number of inquiries from employees who, prior to Target Canada’s CCAA filing on January 15, 2015, had received approval from their manager for vacation or other leave of absence. There has been some confusion and uncertainty as to whether those approved vacations or leaves will be permitted during the wind-down of Target’s business in Canada.
Some employees have been advised that they will have to resign if they wish to take the leave or vacation, and will forfeit their termination entitlements. This is not accurate.
If you are a Target Canada employee whose request for vacation or leave has been approved, you will be permitted to take that approved absence without penalty. You need not resign. Your entitlement to receive payments from the Employee Trust will not be affected.
