Court of Appeal for Ontario Says Employer's Financial Hardship Cannot Affect Reasonable Notice for Dismissal

The recent decision of Michela v. St. Thomas of Villanova Catholic School reaffirms that employers have an obligation to provide reasonable notice to employees, regardless of the employer's financial circumstances. This obligation is not reduced when the employer faces financial hardship and, as such, economic hardship is not relevant to calculating the length of the reasonable notice period.
