The loss of a job is emotionally devastating for most people.
If you've just been dismissed from your employment, for any reason, in many cases you have more rights than you think. Many employers offer dismissed employees payment in lieu of notice in accordance with the Employment Standards Act in Ontario. While your employer's initial offer of severance may technically comply with the Employment Standards Act, the Employment Standards Act provides only the bare minimum your employer must pay you on dismissal. Your right to severance pay, termination pay, pay in lieu of notice or in some cases damages, under the common law may be much higher than what is simply set out in the Employment Standards Act.
To properly protect your rights during termination of your employment, you need competent legal counsel well versed in the ever-changing nuances of employment law.
The lawyers at Blumberg Segal LLP have handled hundreds of wrongful dismissal cases and can help you achieve the best possible resolution of your wrongful dismissal case in a cost-effective manner.
