Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.
Are you saying they are dismissing you or are they saying that the contract has been frustrated because you are unable to work?
You were saying that you will be able to work but things got delayed because of Covid correct?
I cannot read the attachments. Some are too small and some are sideways.
Can you please just give me the notice of dismissal right side up please?
Can you please attach the letter you got a May 21.
What code did they put on the ROE? I cannot see it.
I am talking about when they put in the reason for termination they needed to choose a code. Can you give me that code?
I have to figure out what their position is before I can provide the accurate information you need.
That is just dishonest. You have no intention of not coming back to work and you never said you were permanently unable to work.
They did this to get out of paying you termination pay which would be considerable after 10 - 12 years. If you were dismissed without just cause you would be entitled to receive reasonable notice or pay in lieu of notice.
Generally, in determining what is reasonable notice Courts look at several factors including the length of time you worked for the employer, your age, your position, the likelihood of finding new employment etc.
At the high end, if you were in a managerial position, the Court would likely order one month's notice or pay in lieu of notice for each year of employment. If you were not in a managerial position the Court would order somewhat less.
For this reason you should be consulting with an employment lawyer at this point.
What you can do to find a lawyer is one of the following things.
You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.
The number is:
