What is Wrongful Termination?

Wrongful Termination—also known as Wrongful Dismissal—occurs when an employee’s dismissal violates the terms of their contract with an employer. The term also applies when that employee’s dismissal violates any statute provisions under Canadian employment law. Unless they have cause, companies must provide employees with reasonable notice regarding the end of employment. In lieu of notice, employers may provide adequate compensation as severance pay.

Were you fired from your job unexpectedly and for no reason?  If you had an employment agreement, do you feel that the terms of your contract were broken or ignored?


What Qualifies as Wrongful Termination?

You may be a victim of Wrongful Termination if your employer dismissed you from your position:

  • Based on your race, religion, nationality, age, sexual orientation, or gender
  • After you filed a claim for discrimination or participated in an investigation
  • Without following proper procedures as outlined in the employee handbook
  • Without giving proper notification or fair compensation in lieu of due notice

Do You Have a Case for Wrongful Termination?

In order to determine if you have a case to pursue damages, you must determine the following:

  • Were you offered an unfair severance package?
  • Are you entitled to any bonus or stock options?
  • Is your contract with your employer enforceable?
