Reasonable Notice is a legal term that refers to how much notice or time an employer must give you, the employee, of the date your job will be terminated. In some cases, employers may choose to pay out a severance package in lieu of reasonable notice.
What is considered reasonable notice will vary from situation to situation and is dependent on a variety of factors.
Our lawyers will determine if 3 months of pay is reasonable based on a variety of factors.
Reasonable notice/severance packages entitle you to all aspects of your compensation, including:
- Regular salary, commissions, and bonuses
- Pension contributions
- RRSP contributions
- Medical and dental benefits
- Fringe benefits (allowances for vehicles, cellphones, gym memberships, etc.)
- Vacation pay
It is important for you to understand that most employees are entitled to substantially more reasonable notice or severance than the Alberta Employment Standards Code.
As each case is unique, our lawyers will assess yours to determine the appropriate amount of notice or severance you are entitled to.
WHO IS ENTITLED TO REASONABLE NOTICE?
