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

Constructive dismissal is a legal term that refers to a situation in which your employer substantially changes the terms of your employment contract, without first obtaining your agreement.

More Information

An employee is said to have resigned from employment when he or she voluntarily ends the employment relationship or quits.

More Information

just cause for termination is severe misconduct, neglect or incompetence on the part of an employee. Usually, employers must provide employees notice or termination pay in lieu of notice before their employment can be terminated.

More Information

If you are terminated from your job without cause in Canada, employers are generally obligated to provide sufficient advance notice of termination or payment in lieu of this notice.

More Information

Federal and provincial law protects an employee’s right to be given notice of termination or to be paid in lieu of working during this notice period. If, however, the employment is terminated for just cause, the employer has no obligation to give the employee notice or pay during this period. This is why it is so important for employees to consult with a labour lawyer after any employment is terminated.

More Information

Wrongful dismissal is prohibited under federal and provincial laws. Canadian employees have the right to be compensated when their employment is terminated without legal cause. Employees may also be entitled to compensation for vacation pay and other benefits upon termination of employment.

More Information

Although layoffs are a common way for employers to reduce their workforce, it is important that they are done in a fair and legal manner. Employees and employers should educate themselves on Canadian employment law so that there is a clear understanding of what is allowed during a layoff.
