The key point to understand is that a “reasonable” notice of dismissal is subject to interpretation.
The factors to be considered vary on a case-by-case basis, and include qualifiers such as age, experience, length of service, training and qualification, and a host of others. There are over 150 factors in Howard Levitt’s book The Law of Dismissal in Canada. That’s why hiring a wrongful dismissal lawyer is so important.
Since every case is different, and because the law in this area is always context dependent, you need a team with a deep level of experience in employment litigation, one that can ensure you are aware of your rights and that can help you get the settlement you deserve.
Most companies will try to pay as little as it believes you might accept, offering you an exit agreement that undervalues your past contributions. Don’t let that happen! Before signing anything, consult with an employment lawyer specialized in wrongful dismissal.
