Losing your job can be devastating, particularly after many years of loyal service to your employer.

 

Ferguson DiMeo - St Thomas and Area Employment LawIn our experience, employers are often only interested in saving money and this usually means paying out as little as possible in a severance package rather than what is fair and reasonable. 

 

Unless an employer has “just cause” for terminating an employee, an employee is entitled to some compensation according to Ontario law.  The Employment Standards Act sets out the minimum amount to be paid upon termination of employment, but you may be entitled to more.

 

 

It can be difficult to negotiate an appropriate severance package with your employer, especially when you have to think about your family’s future.

  

We understand your concerns.  We can help you understand your options and ensure that you receive fair and reasonable compensation when your employment has been terminated.
