Employment Termination Lawyers: Hamilton, Ontario

Navigating the complexities of employment termination, whether as an employer or an employee, requires careful consideration and understanding of the law. At DWA Law, our employment lawyers guide both employees and employers through the termination process to make sure rights are protected and fair outcomes are achieved.

Understanding Dismissal

Dismissal can fundamentally alter your professional and personal life. It is categorized into two distinct types: ‘with cause’ and ‘without cause’. A ‘with cause’ dismissal is justified by the employee’s misconduct or neglect, and as such, there is no severance entitlement beyond the final paycheck. Conversely, a ‘without cause’ termination entitles the employee to a severance package.

Our employment lawyers negotiate and review severance packages, taking into account all relevant factors to secure a just resolution. Before accepting or finalizing any agreement, consulting with our team prevents potential legal disputes.

Addressing Constructive Dismissal

Constructive dismissal happens when an employer changes the employment conditions without an employee’s consent, which drives the employee to resign. These changes might include pay cuts, demotion, workplace harassment, or an unreasonable increase in workload. Employees facing such circumstances must act quickly to preserve their rights to claim termination damages.
