Advising And Representing High-Level Ontario Executives

Our employment litigation team has been representing executives in disputes with former employers throughout its history. Our work starts as soon as clients contact us for a consultation. We can advise in the event no severance package was proposed after a termination, or review termination packages for appropriateness, given an employee’s performance and history with a company.

As with many issues in common-law employment, entitlements are often complex and based on legislation and case law. Often, a former employee discovers he or she is entitled to a much larger severance than the employer is offering.

Representation In Constructive Dismissal Cases

Wrongful dismissal takes many forms. In Ontario, it is possible to pursue a claim for constructive dismissal. In this scenario, an employee may have been forced to resign because of circumstances in the workplace. Many factors can contribute to a claim of constructive dismissal, including harassment, discrimination, demotion or salary reduction.
