Canada Labour Code Unjust Dismissal
Certain employees in federally regulated industries such as banking and telecommunications are governed by the Canada Labour Code. The Canada Labour Code allows non-managerial employees who have completed 12 months of continuous employment and who are not subject to a collective agreement, to challenge an employer’s dismissal decision. The Canada Labour Code provides additional rights to federally regulated employees that go beyond the traditional wrongful dismissal claims available to most employees in Ontario. As part of our intake process, we assess whether employees have rights under the Canada Labour Code and we have experience successfully pursuing unjust dismissal complaints for employees in the federal sector.
