Was I Wrongfully Terminated?
Wrongful termination occurs when an Employer terminates his or her employee without cause or an employer terminates his or her Employee for cause, but without providing notice of dismissal when the employer did not have just cause to terminate the Employee.
Wrongful termination typically occurs when an employer fails to provide the employee with proper notice of dismissal or the employer’s decision to terminate the employee’s contract was unlawful. If the dismissal was based on discriminatory grounds such as race, gender, sexual orientation, colour, or ethnicity.
