Employee induced to leave his employment and terminated six months later awarded six months’ pay

In Greenlees v. Starline Windows Ltd., [2018] B.C.J. No. 3074, the British Columbia Supreme Court awarded an employee six months’ notice after working for only six months.

Prior to working for Starline Windows, Mr. Greenlees worked for Trevor Jarvis Contracting, earning roughly $100,000 per year as a sales representative. In January 2017, Mr. Greenlees received a cold-call from a sales manager at Starline Windows to discuss a job opportunity. Over the course of two meetings, Mr. Greenlees was offered a position working primarily in new residential projects with occasional work in renovation construction projects. The Starline representative estimated potential income in the range of $100,000 per year, including commissions, and that an income in excess of $100,000 per year was a realistic expectation. The employee was also promised that his commission rate would start at 3% and rise to 6% after three months. The employee accepted the position based on these representations made by Starline.
