One of our employment law specialists is ready to advise you on any employment related matters.
If your employment was terminated without cause, you may be entitled to notice (severance), under both the Employment Standards Code and at common law. Employers will often offer you less than your full legal entitlement. Contact us before accepting a termination package to ensure that you are receiving fair severance.
If your employer has substantially altered the terms or conditions of your employment, you may have been constructively dismissed, and you may be entitled to a significant severance package. Contact us to find out more about constructive dismissal.
Layoff and Recall
Your employer may not have the right to lay you off, even if a closure or slowdown was associated with COVID-19. Contact us for advice on your rights in a layoff situation, including whether or not the employer has the lawful right to conduct layoffs.
