QUESTION: After 10 years of service in a supervisory position I was recently terminated by my employer without any explanation. I have received only positive feedback and yet they replaced me soon after I was let go.
Usually, there are two things to talk about when somebody is terminated without just cause. First there is the Employment Standards Act
which sets out minimum entitlements.
The fact that women are still paid, very often, less money for the same or similar work as their male counterparts, is, unfortunately, not news. The provincial government has introduced legislation to attempt to combat this malingering sore.
Many employers suffer from a misapprehension about significantly changing terms of employment. They think that if the change is a direct result of business-related reorganization and not personal in any way that the employee cannot take the position they have been constructively dismissed…terminated.
