Did your former employer terminate your employment based upon false allegations of just cause or baseless accusations of misconduct and impropriety?
Were you given a reasonable opportunity to present your side of the story for investigation? The law in Alberta is clear: abusive and unfair conduct by an employer leading to up to a dismissal, inappropriate and false reasons for dismissal and an inadequate and unfair investigation constitutes a failure to comply with the duty of good faith expected of every employer.
If you find yourself in similar circumstances, you may be entitled to significant aggravated damages of between $50-200,000 beyond your entitlement to severance. If these circumstances apply to you, let’s hold your former employer accountable for engaging in its untruthful, misleading, humiliating and insensitive behaviour.
