An employer has the right to terminate an employee at any time for any reason. However, many employees may not be aware of what rights they are entitled to before they sign any termination or severance documents.
At Vice & Hunter LLP, our legal team is dedicated to helping you receive compensation benefits above legislative guidelines. Depending on your age, length of employment, contributions and position, you could be entitled to compensation above what your employer has offered.
Termination Without Cause
An employer is obligated to provide sufficient notice of termination, or in lieu of notice, adequate compensation for the termination.
The legal team of Vice & Hunter LLP will identify if you have been provided adequate notice for your termination. Depending on your role, you may be entitled to compensation to cover damage and losses to your reputation, ability to find work, and maintaining your lifestyle after the termination.
Terminations With Cause
When employers dismiss you with cause, they aren’t necessarily bound by law to provide you with any compensation. However, just because they have provided a reason for the termination doesn’t mean that you don’t have a claim for wrongful termination.
Courts pay close attention to ‘with cause’ cases due to the harmful consequences to a person’s reputation and ability to find employment. At Vice & Hunter LLP, we leverage our extensive knowledge of employment law to thoroughly investigate the matter and determine if ‘just cause’ exists in your circumstances.
