Dismissal is considered to be unjust as per the Canada Labour Code when you are federally regulated and a non-unionized employee has been terminated improperly. When being dismissed from your job, the employer should have a valid reason for it or the job position should be discontinued. However, unjust dismissal is not the ideal remedy for every situation. Having a lawyer by your side can help you to figure it out.
Constructive dismissal happens when the employer changes the terms and conditions of the job in a significant manner. Some of the examples of these significant changes include a change in the compensation, title, job duty, location or hours of work. When this happens, the employer is trying to terminate you. It is a type of wrongful dismissal. When facing this type of dismissal, you can press damages. The lawyers can help you to negotiate the existing package which is fair to you.

Often termination clause is included by the employers in the employment agreement. If the clause is enforceable, it will limit the period of “reasonable notice” you are given when terminated. Employees usually accept this at the face value. If one has been fired, the situation can turn on them. When the clause is not enforceable, the notice period is calculated as per the common law, and the amount is usually higher. You must have a lawyer by your side.
