Lawyer faces criminal charges after clients act on his advice

Similar to the employers’ obligation to provide advance notice of termination, employees must provide advance notice of their resignations, assuming there is no such contractual term that specifies another amount. The amount of notice is dependant on how long it would reasonably take the employer to find a suitable replacement. While wrongful resignation lawsuits in Canada are rare (proving a tangible economic loss is the reason), employees must still be careful.
