Constructive Dismissal and Without Cause Terminations – How to Minimize Risk

- 01:30 PM Mountain Time

Dismissing an employee without cause isn’t always straightforward. What are an employee’s rights upon termination? What is reasonable notice? When can an employee make a claim for wrongful dismissal? And what about constructive dismissal? When does making changes to an employee’s duties and responsibilities lead to a constructive dismissal? Can the workplace environment create a risk of constructive dismissal? The McLennan Ross Labour & Employment team has a wealth of experience assisting clients to manage their workforce while minimizing the risks associated with terminating employees and constructive dismissals.

In this seminar, Vicki Giles and Jessica Kruhlak will review the law and provide you with practical advice regarding constructive dismissal and without cause terminations.

Topics covered in this presentation include:

  • What is reasonable notice and who is entitled to receive it?
  • Traps to avoid and best practices in terminating employees
  • What changes can an employer make to an employee’s terms and conditions of employment?
  • Best practices when implementing fundamental changes to an employment contract
  • Constructive dismissal allegations in the context of hostility or harassment
  • Employee mitigation responsibilities following constructive dismissal and termination
