To Whom It May Concern



I started work on call at The Nanaimo Regional General HospitalHospital in 2006 as a patient porter I was good at my job and I enjoyed it. I had my criminal record check and although I had a criminal record my record check was okay ed it included being cleared to work with children. I am gay and I have bi polar disorder and in 2009 I had a breakdown and had to be hospitalized at the same hospital I worked at. When I was well a few months later my psychiatrist said I could return to work and put it in writing. The new staffing boss for porters was Anna Hills she was aware that I had been a patient in psychiatry.She set me up a start date and arranged orientation for me. She later called in the managenment and then everything she had arranged was put on hold. I got the union involved and they haven't done much I haven't heard from them or management for three months. I was told by management and it was disscussed that they didn't want to give me my job back because of my mental illness and that is discrimination. My doctor continues to back me returning to work and she has provided two letters to that regard to hospital management.When I picked up my 2010 T4 the secretary behind the desk told me I was no longer employed by the hospital. I have had no calls or letters fom either management or the union telling me I was terminated I have not recieved a seperation either, I hope you can help.I callen Human Resources today and found out my termination date was January 06 2011

Thank You
Sincerely
