The law has described constructive dismissal as being a case where an employer unilaterally makes a fundamental or substantial change to an employee’s contract of employment. When this occurs, the employer is committing a breach of the contract that results in its termination and entitles the employee to consider himself
Graeme Fraser does not represent employers; he acts solely for employees in the non-union workplace. There is seldom a situation arising in anyone’s lifetime that is more imbalanced and unfair than when that person is fired from their job, especially without notice. All employees, whether entry level or upper management, long term or short, have rights at this time that Graeme will ensure are protected and pursued for you. If you do not receive your just entitlement, you have likely been wrongfully dismissed. Your termination pay in lieu of notice, severance pay, and potentially also common law notice, must be determined in order to obtain what is usually referred to as your “severance package”. If your former employer will not reasonably negotiate, a claim can be brought against that employer in court for wrongful dismissal, where employees can be assured that the imbalance between the parties is eliminated, and where Graeme Fraser has achieved outstanding results for his clients.
