Terms of Contract Not Always Binding

As Peer 1 Network Incorporated recently learned, Court’s are loath to enforce some agreements.

In Hayes v. Peer 1 Network Incorporated 2007 CanLII 23352 (ON. S.C), an appeal successfully argued by Daniel A. Lublin, an Ontario Superior Court judge overturned a motion judge’s finding that Mr. Hayes was unable to sue his former employer, Peer 1 Network, for wrongful dismissal, in an Ontario Court.

In succeeding on the appeal, Mr. Hayes and Mr. Lublin were able to convince the court that Ontario was the most appropriate forum for Mr. Hayes’ wrongful dismissal trial, or at least, that Washington (where employment is at-will) was not the most appropriate forum for the hearing.
