Have you found yourself terminated suddenly?
After being terminated – especially if your employment is ended without notice – you are likely entitled to compensation – but knowing what you are owed in terms of notice, pay or benefits is often less straightforward than you might expect. Too often, employment contracts try to limit employee entitlements should they be terminated.
Upon termination, your employer may ask you to sign a termination package or execute a Full and Final Release. Do not sign anything before seeking proper legal advice.
In order to ensure that you have been compensated fully and properly in accordance with Ontario employment law you will need to have your severance package reviewed by an experienced employment lawyer.
