Constructive Dismissal Lawyers
Constructive dismissal, also known as constructive termination, occurs when an employer makes changes to an employee's job duties or working conditions that are so significant that it effectively amounts to termination. In Ontario, Canada, employees who feel that they have been constructively dismissed have the right to take legal action against their employer.
To prove constructive dismissal, an employee must show that the changes made by their employer were significant and unreasonable. This can include things like a significant reduction in pay, a demotion, or a change in job duties that is so significant that it amounts to a different job altogether. The employee must also show that they did not agree to the changes.
It is important for employees who feel that they have been constructively dismissed to seek legal advice as soon as possible, as there are strict time limits for taking legal action. If an employee is successful in proving constructive dismissal, they may be entitled to damages, including severance pay, lost wages, and benefits. In some rare cases, an employee may also be entitled to reinstatement, although this is not common.
If you are an employee in Ontario and feel that you have been constructively dismissed, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. An experienced Toronto employment lawyer can help you understand your rights and options. Call us today for a free legal consultation.
