Wrongful Dismissal in Non-Unionized Work Environments

An employer is permitted by law to terminate employees from their job as long as an advanced warning or payment, known as severance, is provided.

An employee is wrongfully dismissed when an employer terminates the employee without notice of termination or a fair payment in lieu of notice. What is most often disputed in wrongful dismissal cases is the amount of notice or pay in lieu of notice that an employee is entitled to because there are a wide range of factors that need to be considered. Factors include an employee’s salary, age, tenure as well as entitlement to all non-discretionary payments that he/she earned while employed.
