Wrongful dismissal occurs when an employer terminates one’s employment without providing reasonable notice (or pay in lieu of notice) as required under legislation such as the Ontario Employment Standards Act, 2000 or Canada Labour Code, an employment contract, or at common law.
At Wray Legal we act for both employees and employers providing advice and representation with respect to terminations of employment and wrongful dismissal claims. Each situation is unique and deserves the attention and guidance that only an experienced employment lawyer can provide. We take the time to understand your situation and goals, assess and evaluate your case, and provide tailored advice to meet your objectives.
For employees, our comprehensive advice considers your right to reasonable notice and total compensation, including, as it may apply, commissions, health and other benefits, perquisites, bonuses, stock options and related equity compensation, and reference letters for future employment. Our experienced lawyers will also canvass related matters including human rights and discrimination, workplace harassment and violence, and long-term disability benefits, as these may apply in your situation.
For employers, who may be defending a wrongful dismissal action, we provide full litigation representation with the aim of resolving the matter in a fair and timely manner.
We offer a cost-effective, problem-solving approach to our advice and representation through both negotiation and litigation.
