The termination of one’s employment is a difficult and stressful event, both on a personal and a financial level. The remedies available at law are limited and often unsatisfying.
Samuel A. Mossman has extensive experience in the area of wrongful dismissal including having successfully conducted a number of trials and having successfully defended substantial damage awards made in favour of his clients in the Ontario Court of Appeal. Mr. Mossman acts for both employers and employees in this area of his practice.
What You Need to Know
The comments here are relevant to non-unionized employment situations only. If you are a unionized employee, all of your rights and remedies are found within the bargaining agreement. Generally speaking, your remedies are exercised through the “grievance” procedure and you do not have the right to have access to the court.
For the Employee:
a) The Employee’s Years of Service to the Employer
b) The Employee’s Age at Termination
c) The Nature of the Employment
d) The Economic Environment in Which the Employee Will be Seeking Other Work
e) The Transferability of the Employee’s Skills
