Bad Faith Discharge

Additional compensation is possible if your employer acts inappropriately during your termination

Here is the information you need to know about bad faith discharge.


What is bad faith discharge?

Compensation for wrongful dismissal is meant to get you the pay you would have earned had you remained at work during your notice period. However, you can sometimes seek additional compensation if the way your employer terminates your employment involves inappropriate conduct.

Your employer is expected by law to dismiss you in a reasonable, honest, and upfront manner. If you experience additional harm because they are unfair, dishonest, misleading, thoughtless, harsh, or extreme in the way they terminate your employment, you could claim additional compensation.

How can an employment lawyer help you better understand if you can claim bad faith discharge compensation?

Not all unpleasant employer conduct will warrant additional compensation. Working with an experienced employment lawyer is imperative to understand if your situation warrants additional damages for bad faith discharge.
