If you’ve been fired – we can help. It’s important to understand that in Ontario, the law surrounding the termination of an employees involves important consideration and obligation on the part of the employer. Unless you have been terminated for “just cause” or your employment relationship is for a fixed term, the employer is obligated to provide you with reasonable notice of termination OR compensation in lieu of such notice. When we speak of compensation, it’s important to understand that employers cannot contract out of the statutory minimum requirements under the Employment Standards Act. You must be provided with the correct statutory notice, as well as statutory minimum severance and common law reasonable notice – which is potentially available to non-union employees in certain circumstances.
Losing your job is difficult enough - not being paid the proper severance amount owed to you makes things worse. If you've lost your job - call us to make sure things are done right.
