Why Hire a Severance Lawyer in Toronto?

Termination is at times a difficult experience for both the employer and employee alike. If you are an employer and are considering terminating an employee, you might be wondering how much termination pay or severance your employee is owed. Relying on tools such as severance pay calculators could give you a misrepresented amount – opening you up to liability down the line for wrongful dismissal claims.

If you are an employee, employers will try to give you less than you are entitled to when you are terminated, and ask you to sign a “release”. As an employee, you should always hire a severance lawyer to ensure that you are receiving what you are actually entitled to.
