Severance Pay Lawyers Toronto


For most people, losing a job can be a traumatic event. We can help you assess your legal entitlements to notice and severance and make sure that you are compensated adequately as a result of the termination of your employment.

Documents that outline severance packages can often be intimidating. Without the guidance of an experienced employment lawyer, it is extremely difficult to assess whether a severance offer is adequate. We take the time to find out all the required information about you, your job, the company, your compensation and the events leading up to termination. We will then tell you what your severance package should contain, allowing you to compare our assessment with what you have actually been offered by the company.

When assessing your legal entitlements, we consider the following information as it pertains to your individual case:

  • Salary
  • Benefits
  • Bonus
  • Commissions
  • Car allowance
  • Pension
  • Stock options

Never sign back a severance offer without seeking legal advice. Most of the time employers offer inadequate severance packages in the hope that a departing employee will accept such an offer without seeking legal advice. Do not make this mistake.
