The loss of employment can equally affect an individual’s life in a traumatic way. Whether an employee is wrongfully dismissed, constructively dismissed or simply laid off; the sudden loss of income is an experience that none of us wish to face.
Employers and employees are at least somewhat aware of the Employment Standards Act (ESA) and the rights and responsibilities it creates. However, in addition to the ESA, given that the majority of Canada follows the English common law system, there is a significant body of case law that regulates the employer and employee relationship, especially when it involves termination.
Therefore, an employment lawyer becomes a valuable resource when the following issues become apparent:
- Wrongful Dismissal
- Constructive Dismissal
- Termination without cause (Employee lay off)
- Sufficiency of Notice/Severance packages
- Discrimination at the workplace (Human Rights Violations)
Having significant experience dealing with these issues, Adib Nadi has negotiated and obtained significant awards of damages for his clients, providing at least some temporary financial relief during such a stressful time in their lives.
