Wrongful Dismissal

A dismissal is considered wrongful if an employee is fired or the employment contract is changed without warning. It is critical to meet with one of our lawyers before signing any documents to determine if you are entitled to severance and to ensure that your legal position is not prejudiced by any steps you take.

Wrongful dismissal is a sensitive subject. Many people don’t want to address it for fear that there will be negative consequences. At Krylov Lam & Company, we believe that you deserve to understand your rights as an employee. When you understand your rights, you are better able to identify situations where you, or someone you know, may have been wrongfully dismissed and what you can do about it. Our team of experienced lawyers are here to help you with any of your employment law needs.

When people are terminated from their employment they often think that they are entitled to nothing more than the one week of pay for each year of service which the Ontario Employment Standards Act allows to them. In actual fact they are entitled to much more.

There is no hard and fast rule as to how much notice a court will award. This is because courts like to retain flexibility and tailor the award to each specific case using such factors as the age of the person, the position held, the years of service and any other factors which a court might think are relevant in a specific case.
