This is an interesting case as it awarded a ONE year employee, 5 months of severance. I hate to think what may have happened if their health conditions had turned into a disability claim during this time. Having employment agreements can help reduce this risk and expense.
B.C. Court of Appeal upholds 5 months’ notice for 12 months of service
Dismissed employee’s age and experience deserved 5 months’ notice, but additional 3 months because of health concerns not warranted
