Termination from a job can come out of nowhere.
One minute you’re on the job, the next, you’re escorted from the building with a severance package to sign. The faster you sign it, the faster you’ll get your money. But hold on, you could be losing out on money owed to you… A termination clause is in place to limit the severance pay. The Ontario Court of Appeal recently rendered most termination clauses unenforceable. Laws continue to evolve, changing the rules of employment and things like severance packages. That’s why it’s so important to have a lawyer like Leslie Smith with more than 30 years of experience, to review your severance package.
