As the saying goes, ‘Breaking up is hard to do’, and this is particularly true when the break-ups are between employers and employees. A few years ago, Canada’s highest court confirmed that all parties (including employers) have obligations of ‘good faith’ when dealing with and terminating employment contracts. Since then, our courts have expanded on what this means in terms of process, severance and damages.
In this session, we will review the latest trends in court and arbitral decisions when it comes to terminating employees with or without just cause, and provide advice on ‘best practices’ in light of these developments when terminating employees.
