Employee Terminations: A Master Class for Canadian Employers

Whatever term you use, though, dismissals are the most significant source of risk and liability for employers in Canada. Unfortunately, there are several myths and misconceptions about what's required at the time of dismissal, and many organizations have ineffective termination clauses in their contracts.

Therefore, the best way to avoid a wrongful dismissal claim is to know how to properly handle terminations before you're required to put it into practice.

In this 90-minute session, Canadian employment lawyer and mediator Stuart Rudner looks at the critical considerations for employers when carrying out terminations, including:

  • Dismissal with cause vs dismissal without cause
  • After-acquired cause
  • Constructive dismissal
  • Post-termination compensation
  • The difference between statutory, common law, and contractual entitlements on dismissal
  • The importance of a Full and Final Release

Learn the correct way to handle a dismissal and minimize the associated costs to your organization.
