If you are an employee who was terminated or laid off, employers will try to give you less than you are entitled, and asked to sign a ‘release’. Do not sign any documents before consulting an employment lawyer. As a firm specializing in Employment Law, we help you protect your rights and collect higher awards from your employer.
When calculating what you are owed when you are terminated, the court made a list of Four factors (known as the Bardal factors) to determine how much notice period or payment in lieu of notice you are owed:
Your position (or character of employment)
Years of Service in that position
Availability of similar employment
Note: this list is not exhaustive. This means, the court will consider a large number of other factors when determining what an appropriate notice period for your case is.
Employment lawyers know what and how to present to the opposite side and to the court in order to get you a higher award for being terminated.
