Wrongful Dismissal

What Is Wrongful Dismissal?

Wrongful dismissal is less about the reasons an employee is terminated and more about the way an employer approaches the termination process.

One key component of lawful dismissal is advance notice. Employers are required to notify workers of their termination in such a way that gives them enough time to begin looking for other job opportunities and thereby soften the blow of sudden unemployment.

Though the Canada Labour Code requires employers to provide “reasonable” notice, this term is somewhat ambiguous. If your employer fired you and dismissed you immediately, this is certainly not reasonable notice. However, even a week or several days may not be enough time for you to seek alternative work, in which case your employer may still be guilty of wrongfully dismissing you.

What Can I Do if I Have Been Wrongfully Dismissed by My Employer?

Do not make any snap decisions, sign any paperwork, or agree to any severance benefits. In doing so, you may unintentionally sign away compensation to which you are legally entitled.

The best thing you can do is get information from a reliable source and discuss the nature of your termination with a Toronto employment law lawyer. By evaluating your case with a skilled professional and seeking wise legal counsel, you may ultimately be able to recover wages you would have otherwise earned if your employer had given you reasonable notice.
