Wrongful Dismissal

Wrongful dismissal occurs when your employer terminates your employment, without respecting your legal rights.

Common examples of wrongful dismissal:

  • Your employer terminates your employment without giving you reasonable notice or pay in lieu of reasonable notice;
  • Your employer is falsely claiming that it has just cause to terminate your employment and refuses to pay you a severance
  • Your employer terminates you without providing you with your final pay, vacation pay or other entitlements found in the Employment Standards Code
  • Your employer changes the terms of your employment contract without your agreement
