Employment Agreement Lawyers for Employees in Western Canada
Why are employment contracts important?
The devil is in the details
Besides setting out the basic terms of your employment, written employment contracts often contain what is called a ‘termination clause’. If you are dismissed, a termination clause can substantially limit your entitlement to reasonable notice and/or severance pay. These types of clauses are becoming more common in employment contracts, and it is important that you have an employment lawyer review this clause immediately following your dismissal from employment.
Not every termination clause is valid
Just because there is a termination clause in your contract, does not mean that it is legally enforceable. Depending on the specific language used, there is a good possibility that the termination clause in your contract, is unenforceable, in which case you may still be entitled to proper reasonable notice and/or severance pay.
