Terminations are never easy, but unpleasant surprises and prolonged litigation can be avoided when fully informed decisions are made regarding the merits and consequences of a termination decision. Our Labour and Employment Group can help managers determine whether a termination is warranted under the circumstances, evaluate the associated risks and, where appropriate, consider alternative management strategies. We provide authoritative advice regarding statutory and common law entitlements and other legal considerations. We can assist in crafting severance arrangements that are consistent with your organization’s strategic objectives and prepare suitably-tailored termination documents.
With our extensive experience in the area of wrongful dismissal litigation, we are ideally positioned to provide the expert guidance needed to achieve your goals during any post-termination negotiations or, when necessary, to successfully defend your position in court or before an employment law tribunal. Our firm continually monitors and evaluates developments in the law to give our clients a strategic edge in wrongful dismissal litigation.
