Terminating an employee’s contract without just cause or disregarding the proper legal procedures constitutes wrongful dismissal, also referred to as wrongful termination. In Canada, this term covers various scenarios, such as an employer neglecting to provide reasonable notice or pay instead of notice, breaching the employment contract, or dismissing an employee contrary to human rights or labour laws.
Bases for Wrongful Dismissal Allegations
Employees may present legitimate wrongful dismissal claims for several reasons. Common grounds for these claims involve:
- Dismissal without just cause: Valid reasons, like inadequate performance or misconduct, are necessary for employers to terminate an employee. Dismissing without appropriate grounds might be deemed wrongful.
- Inadequate notice or severance: Providing reasonable notice or pay in lieu of notice is legally mandated when terminating an employee without cause. Not doing so may lead to a wrongful dismissal claim.
- Discrimination: Terminating an employee based on factors like race, gender, age, disability, or other protected grounds may be deemed wrongful dismissal under Canadian human rights legislation.
- Retaliation: Employees cannot be dismissed for exercising their rights, such as reporting harassment or unsafe working conditions. This form of termination qualifies as wrongful dismissal.
Legal Courses of Action for Wrongful Dismissal
Wrongfully dismissed employees can pursue several legal remedies, including:
- Submitting a complaint to the relevant government agency, like the Ministry of Labour, the Canadian Human Rights Commission, or the corresponding provincial human rights tribunal.
- Settling with the employer, which might involve financial compensation, reinstatement, or other restitution.
- Filing a civil lawsuit against the employer to seek damages, including lost wages, emotional distress, and possibly punitive damages.
Navigating Legal Procedures
Should you suspect wrongful dismissal, it’s vital to consult with a knowledgeable employment lawyer who can clarify your rights and steer you through the legal process. They can evaluate your claim’s strengths, recommend possible remedies, and represent you during negotiations or litigation, if required. Acting swiftly is imperative since filing complaints or initiating legal action may be subject to strict deadlines.
