Severance Pay

Toronto, Ontario Severance Pay Lawyers

Were You Fired Unjustly and Feel You Deserve Compensation?

Nearly every employee terminated without cause has the right to notice of termination—or pay in lieu of notice. Severance pay—compensation to a qualified employee who is severed—compensates an employee for their losses. This is unlike termination pay, which is pay given in lieu of required notice of termination.

Canadian employees who are dismissed without cause are typically entitled to some form of a reasonable severance package.

If an employee has signed an enforceable contract containing a termination clause, however, this may not be the case. Even so, such contracts can be challenged.

In Ontario, severance packages must provide for notice pay—and, if applicable, severance pay—under the Ontario Employment Standards Act. An employee can qualify for severance pay if:

• They have worked for an employer for five or more years, whether continuous/active
• The employer has payroll in Ontario exceeding of $2.5 million OR has severed 50 or more employees in a six-month period because all or part of the business has closed
