When employees sign an employment contract, employers should be careful about the terms they put in that contract.
In the event of termination, the court will first look at the employment contract to determine what the terminated employee is entitled for: should they awarded the minimum entitlements under the Employment Standards Act, or are the employment contract vague and open the employer to liability under the common law too?
Employers should make sure that their employment contracts are carefully drafted and reviewed in order to limit their obligations to the Employment Standards Act.
