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
