Does Your Misconduct Amount to Just Cause?

Many employees call our employment law firm indicating that they have been terminated from their long-standing employment for just cause; and therefore, after several years of dedicated service to an employer, they are abruptly dismissed without notice or without pay in lieu thereof.

Courts in Ontario have referred to a just cause dismissal at the “capital punishment” of employment law. In other words, the employer has to demonstrate such egregious misconduct to satisfy the test for a dismissal for cause.

Call Goldstein Employment Law to review your termination letter and the circumstances around the dismissal to determine whether we believe that your employer has made a mistake in terminating you for cause, and, instead, that you are entitled to a severance package.
