Wrongful Dismissal Guide

How much severance am I owed?

Severance packages & severance pay

A wrongful dismissal happens when an employee is terminated from a job and the employer did not properly follow the law. For employees terminated without cause, this often means the employer did not give the employee the right amount of notice or severance pay. Where an employee is terminated for cause, they may wish to challenge the grounds relied on by the employer and receive compensation.
