There are only a few ways in which an employee can be lawfully dismissed:
- on sufficient notice;
- for just cause; or
- per the terms of a binding contractual severance provision.
Each of these issues is elaborated upon in our FAQs.
Generally speaking, almost every dismissal is a “wrongful dismissal” as that term is defined at law. Our foremost practice area is driving toward the most favourable severance package you can get. This involves not only the top line amount, but also nuanced considerations such as tax efficiency and professional references.
