Product description

No employment relationship lasts forever. In cases of dismissal, tact, fairness, and thorough familiarity with the law are crucial - anything less can lead to a claim of wrongful dismissal. The Wrongful Dismissal Handbook, 3rd Edition is a comprehensive how-to-guide on ending employment relationships and dealing with wrongful dismissal claims.

Completely reorganized and updated, this edition examines each topic in greater depth. Coverage includes everything from what makes a termination notice valid to how damages are calculated - preparing you for any employee dismissal or wrongful dismissal proceeding.

What's new in this edition:

  • Supreme Court of Canada decision in Wallace v. United Grain Growers ltd. [1997] which resulted in the formulation of the Wallace "bad faith" test, impacting the length of notice periods
  • Related actions commonly joined with wrongful dismissal actions, including defamation, tort, and conspiracy claims
  • Changes in constructive dismissal, reasonable notice, and damages including key components and the calculation process
