Unjust Dismissal

What Does Unjust Dismissal Mean?

The term “unjust dismissal” refers to the unfair or improper firing of workers in federally supervised industries. This includes workers who are involved in banking, communications, the postal service, aviation, television broadcast networks, trucking, transportation, and more. Regardless of union status, the Canada Labour Code permits unjust dismissal claims from workers who have been in subordinate or non-supervisory positions for at least one consecutive year.

When considering the right amount of severance to offer a federally regulated employee, there are a number of things an employer must take into account, including age, seniority, salary, and more. If any employer fails to make these and other necessary considerations and does not offer a terminated employee an appropriate amount of severance, it may become necessary for such employees to take legal action and demand sufficient compensation from their employers.
