Wrongful Dismissal Lawyer
Consult Our Wrongful Dismissal Lawyers
Losing your job in any manner can be a very stressful experience. You are likely wondering how you will continue to support your family and pay your bills. You may also be worried about finding a new job. Are your skills out of date? You may need to update your training or return to school. Perhaps you are worried that potential employers will pass you over for someone younger.
On top of your concerns about your future, you may have questions about the termination of your employment. If you think that you may have been wrongfully dismissed, then you should consult an experienced wrongful dismissal lawyer as soon as possible. At Girones Lawyers, we can provide you with answers to the questions that all employees have after their employment has been terminated.
Wrongful dismissal occurs when the employer terminates an employee’s job without providing either:
- the minimum statutory notice to the employee (this is typically one week of notice for each year of employment up to 8 weeks), or
- pay in lieu of notice, which should include all benefits and vacation pay to which the employee would have been entitled during their notice period.
You likely have many questions about your legal rights, including:
- Did your employer have “just cause” to fire you?
- Is the termination clause in your employment contract valid (particularly if it allows the employer to provide you with less notice than what would be required by statute)?
- Does the unfair manner in which your employer fired you have an impact on the damages to which you may be entitled?
- What are you entitled to in terms of notice or pay in lieu of notice?
At Girones, we can answer all your questions and provide you with expert representation to negotiate the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.
