  • What is an Employment Contract?
  • What is NOT an Employment Contract?
  • What are the required elements of an Employment Contract?
  • Is there an intention to be legally bound?
  • Is the Employment Contract valid?
    • E.g. If the contract is signed after the Employee has started working, the Employment Contract is null and void.
    • E.g. If an existing Employee has signed a new Employment contract, but has not been provided with additional consideration (e.g. raise/additional vacation days) the Employment Contract is null and void.
  • In Wilson v Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd, 2016 CarswellNat 988 (SCC), the Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that:
    • Federal Employers cannot terminate an Employee who has completed twelve (12) consecutive months of continuous employment without alleging just cause.
    • The ONLY way to terminate an Employee for just cause is by applying progressive discipline.
