Read below common law myths and misconceptions to employment law.


In Ontario, an employee can be dismissed for various reasons including for issues that are not related to performance or conduct. This is called termination without cause. When an employee is terminated without cause, they are entitled to a reasonable notice of termination also known as “pay in lieu” of notice. If an employee does not receive this notice, they have legally been denied their rights. Therefore meaning they are wrongfully dismissed and are entitled to claim monetary compensation for wrongful termination.


An employee cannot be “laid off” without cause unless it is stated within the employment contract. If you are laid off and your employment contract does not expressly provide for lay-offs, you are entitled to bring a suit for wrongful termination. In this case, the employee may treat their employment as being terminated and file for a wrongful dismissal claim.


In Ontario, employees are protected by the Employment Standards Act (ESA) and Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). Employers cannot punish an employee for simply inquiring about or invoking their rights in order to protect their health and safety. If an employer violates anti-reprisal laws, they may be ordered to pay financial compensation to the victim.


Whether you have recently been dismissed from your employment, or believe you are a victim of discrimination, retaliation or reprisals - we can help!
