Termination of Employment Without Cause Ontario

In Ontario and across Canada, employees do not have a right of continued employment.  That means that they can be dismissed at any time and for almost any reason.  But not so fast.  There are rules regarding the right and the wrong way to terminate an employee (termination without cause).

Wrongful dismissal laws protect employees from termination with inadequate notice or severance and from termination without cause with improper allegations of misconduct.

Constructive dismissal laws protect employees from fundamental changes to their positions and or their compensation.

Human rights laws protect employees from discrimination during employment and especially in terminations.

Statutory laws, such as employment standards acts and labour codes, protect employees from terminations that do not respect the legislated minimums.
