A wrongful dismissal occurs when an employer terminates an employee without cause or without providing sufficient notice of their termination. The employer-employee relationship is often governed by many different sources including the employment contract, relevant legislation and case law. The Employment Standards Act merely provides for minimum compensation when a person is terminated. It specifically does not preclude damages at Common Law which often are much more generous. There are many different damages you may be entitled to arising from a wrongful dismissal including pay in lieu of notice, severance pay, termination pay, bonuses, benefits and even punitive/aggravated damages in the right circumstances. It can be difficult financially and emotionally following a termination to navigate the legal landscape.
