Most terminations are “without cause” meaning an employer can dismiss the employee without justification as long as the employee is given reasonable notice and in some cases statutory severance.
If no cause exists, yet the employer dismisses the employee without providing lawful notice, it is then considered a wrongful dismissal. This will allow an employee to claim monetary damages in the way of notice in an amount based upon the employee’s compensation such as wages, commission, bonuses, profit sharing and other entitlements.
When am employer fails to provide any, or inadequate, notice an employee has the right to make a demand and ultimately sue if the employer refuses.
Where an employer fails to provide such compensation, or seeks to provide inadequate compensation, an employee may enforce their legal rights with a claim to compensation for wrongful dismissal.
