HOW CAN WE HELP YOU
Early retirement warning: Be wary of so-called ‘early retirement’ packages, as many employers offer these in an attempt to avoid their full severance obligations to their employees. More information
B.C. employment standards STATE that:
Employers can end employment by:
Giving an employee written notice and/or payment based on how long they’ve been working
Firing an employee for just cause – if an employer has just cause, they don’t have to give notice or pay
When an employer terminates in the first way, the payment is termed “severance pay”.
