Employment Law

Dress code violations and termination

An employee at a Honda car dealership in Edmonton is filing a possible human rights complaint after she was terminated from her position. Caitlin Bernier had spent a few weeks at her employment when she was informed by a co-worker and then later a manager, that her workplace attire was inappropriate and made her male colleagues uncomfortable. She was let go from her position not long after.

This story has led Canadians to wonder what employees can be terminated for, and does it matter the reason during a probation period? Should there have been escalation rather than a severe initial reaction? Toronto employment lawyer Lior Samiru at Samfiru Tumarkin LLP joins 980 CFPL to answer these questions and more.
