Answering a query, the company spokesperson said, "If one has been wrongfully dismissed, they are entitled to reasonable notice of their termination or pay in lieu of that notice. Pay in lieu of notice is often colloquially referred to as severance. The court itself determines how much notice is reasonable based primarily on one's length of service, age, the character of employment, and chances of re-employment."
Almost any dismissal from employment without notice is wrongful. Wrongfully dismissed employees are entitled to compensation from their employers, which sometimes can be up to two years' worth of wages and other benefits. Such compensations for wrongful dismissal claims can only be awarded by courts. So, if one feels that they have been wrongfully dismissed, they should consider filing a lawsuit. In fact, the best approach to file a lawsuit is through employment lawyers. They are skilled at negotiating settlements with employers and pushing wrongful dismissal cases forward. Often, with their effective negotiation, potential lawsuits can be resolved before a legal claim is even initiated. The employment lawyers at Hyde HR Law are experts on effective negotiations. So hire a labour lawyer Toronto today at the law firm.
The company spokesperson added, "It is not an exact science in determining reasonable notice, but most awards are around one month of notice per year of service. The idea is that a wrongfully dismissed employee should be given enough notice of termination to secure a comparable replacement job. For more insights, clients can contact us."
The attorneys at Hyde HR Law can evaluate a client's reasonable notice entitlement at law, negotiate a settlement with their former employer on their behalf, or commence a wrongful dismissal action in court in the event those negotiations are ineffective. So far, they have successfully negotiated numerous severance packages on behalf of their employee clients. And in all those cases in which they have represented their clients, they strived to achieve reasonable settlement agreements for all while keeping legal costs to a minimum.
