Leaving job by mutual agreement (Canadian edition)

My employer and I just agreed that I am not a good fit for the job. What should I do? I'm in Ontario, Canada. I realize that similar questions have asked, but am specifically looking for answers that take Canadian law into account. Thanks! [more inside]

I can't quit, you're firing me

My job is trying to counsel me out for "performance" issues. I think this is unjustified, but either way, the relationship is over. How do I position myself to end my employment on the best terms for me? [more inside]

Does Getting Fired 20 years ago show up in a background check?

I was fired from a retail job back in 1994. I worked there 6 months. The firing could have been argued but I left. I have a job interview tomorrow requiring a background check. I don't want to lie but I don't want to tell the truth as it is so damn long ago and a ridiculous thing....and that job is long long long gone from resume replaced with great work and academic history. Does a routine background check dig up that old dirt? Thanks for your time and have a good week.

Officially i'm fired for 'non performance', in reality i'm fired for 'talking back' and being 'disrespectful'. [more inside]

Fired! How to Deal?

About a year ago, I was unjustly fired. My employer was careful to do it in a way to avoid any legal disputes. How does one get over thoughts of revenge and confrontation. I've considered sending a letter to the person responsible, explaining exactly how I feel about it all. I was never given a proper explaination and the whole thing feels unresolved. I realize a letter is somewhat juvenile and unproductive but I feel this might help me cope. I really want to put this all behind me.
