The law firm leading a lawsuit against Ontario's Ministry of Labour hotline for allegedly not giving the complete story about employer obligations and employee entitlements on termination has launched an app that calculates severance pay.
A Toronto law firm has developed an app that lets you know (after you've been escorted out the door) how much severance you're entitled to if you're fired.
So this is kind of funny, but also kind of not funny if you have to actually use it. Basically, if you get fired, and you want to know how much your boss should pay you off, you're in luck.
On Sept. 25, Toronto-based lawyer Lior Samfiru filed the lawsuit on behalf of his clients, Michael Mosey and Eileen Tremblay - two former Trillium Screw managers laid off after the manufacturing company shuttered its doors last year.
Two long-time former employees of a Pickering manufacturing company are suing the Ontario Ministry of Labour on the grounds they were given bad advice about their severance entitlement.
