EMPLOYMENT EMPLOYMENT

Examples

  • An Employee has numerous absences due to his/her alcoholism. To terminate him/her would be discriminatory as he/she is considered to have a disability (alcoholism)
  • If the contract is signed after the Employee has started working, the Employment Contract is null and void
  • 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
