Wrongful Dismissal: What You Need To Know

If you have been let go from a position, you need to determine if you were given enough notice, or adequate compensation in lieu of notice. As an employer, you need to make sure you have provided sufficient notice or severance to the terminated employee, and that the termination was on lawful grounds.

At MacDonald Associates, we know is this is easier said than done. Serving the Greater Toronto Area and Southern Ontario, our employment lawyers will help you determine how the legislative guidelines apply to your situation, and what legal options you have to resolve the employment dispute.

Challenges For Senior Level and Executive Positions

For employees with higher salaries, senior positions and who have made substantial contributions to the company, the situation can be complicated. In many cases, you may have grounds to claim compensation above the legislative guidelines.

Our employment lawyers will develop a customized strategy to pursue what you are owed. We will identify ways to reduce any consequences resulting from the termination – such as the ability to find work again, and your reputation. We’ll make sure we fight for what you need to bridge the gap from one job to the next.

If there are risks or complications, we will advise you on how to avoid or resolve them with as little consequence as possible.

We aim to help employer and employees resolve their issues through skilled negotiation. However, we will defend your position and advocate for your rights in court if necessary.
