Wrongful termination, also known as wrongful dismissal or wrongful discharge, occurs when an unjust termination violates one or more terms of the employment contract or a statute provision in Canadian employment law. Unless they have cause, Canadian companies must give employees reasonable severance pay, which is measured in months, even years.
You may be a victim of wrongful termination if your employer has terminated your employment because of your race, religion, nationality, age, sexual orientation or gender; if your employer has terminated your employment after you filed a claim of discrimination or participated in a discrimination investigation; and/or if your employer has terminated your employment without following the proper procedures outlined in the employee handbook or without giving you a proper notification.
