Leading Lawyers For Wrongful Dismissal in Ottawa

Wrongful Dismissal Ottawa


Did you face wrongful dismissal in Ottawa?

Do you live or work in Ottawa and recently lost your job without fair notice or severance. Has your employer in Ottawa pressured you to sign a severance package that you disagree with? Or, do the terms of your severance package deviate from the termination clauses in your employment contract? If so, it is essential that you call our lawyers to get advice about your employment rights in Ottawa before you sign anything.

An employee is wrongfully dismissed when an employer terminates the employee without notice of termination or a fair payment in lieu of notice. What is most often disputed in unfair dismissal cases is the amount of notice or pay in lieu of notice that an employee is entitled to because there are a wide range of factors that need to be considered. Factors include an employee’s salary, age, tenure as well as entitlement to all non-discretionary payments that he/she earned while employed.

We represent clients in and around Ottawa and focus on assisting individuals pursue wrongful dismissal cases, particularly where our clients were fired for false allegations of misconduct or where the reasons for termination do not justify the employer’s decision to withhold compensation.

The courts recognize that employees need protection at the time of their dismissal and have stated in the landmark ruling Wallace v. United Grain Growers Ltd [1997] that employers “ought to be held to an obligation of good faith and fair dealing in the manner of dismissal”.

Our lawyers will ensure that, if you live in Ottawa, you are not pressured by your ex-employer to accept unfair terms or new, unfavourable terms that contravene your employment contract. Our lawyers will act expeditiously on your behalf to ensure that you are protected against ex-employers who act in bad faith.
