If you’ve been wrongfully dismissed, your employer may have breached the terms of your employment agreement and, potentially, the Employment Standards Act.
But first, have you been asked to accept/sign a severance offer? Wait, don’t sign! The first offer from your employer is rarely, if ever, fair.
Despite what your employer may say about you needing to sign, that is simply not true. Once you sign and accept the severance package, you cannot later claim additional severance under the common law. This could be many thousands of dollars and months of severance versus weeks. You may also be awarded additional damages depending on your employer’s conduct.
Always have us review your severance offer before you sign so we can get you more.
It’s important to keep in mind that an employer can terminate you for any reason, or no reason at all. What is worse, they aren’t required to tell you the reason they are terminating your employment. They often give you the minimum entitlements they have to give you under the Employment Standards Act and hope you’ll go away.
Don’t settle for less than your full entitlements.
