Termination and Severance

Termination is usually a horrible experience. Most of the time it comes out of no-where with no warning at all. Being terminated (or fired) attacks your identity, self-esteem and self-worth. Most importantly, your ability to support your-self and your family is unexpectedly and immediately extinguished.

This is not the time to “do it your-self", since you don’t know the law, you don’t know your rights, and you don’t have any experience dealing with employers. Find out: your rights if you have been wrongfully dismissed and your entitlement to severance.

Termination for Cause

The consequences of the termination of your employment may be further worsened by an allegation of cause or substantial wrongdoing. Such an allegation can be disastrous to your reputation and ability to find new employment. This allegation will, if left undefended, result in the extinguishment of your right to severance and the disentitlement to employment insurance.

Constructive Dismissal

You may have ended the employment relationship by resignation due to significant changes by your employer to your status, duties, role or remuneration. If this is the case, you may still have rights. You may have been Constructively Dismissed and as a result, be entitled to money damages for Wrongful Dismissal.

Constructive Dismissal law is the most uncertain area of employment law and our lawyers have been providing advice to employees on this issue for over 26 years. Don’t resign until you have obtained legal advice. If you have resigned, we can still help by determining if you have been Contructively Dismissed and as a consequence are entitled to severance or other awards.
