You could be entitled to up to 4 times the minimum requirement of the Employment Standards Act.
The Employment Standards Act states that anyone employed for more than 90 days is entitled to one week’s notice for every year of employment, up to a maximum of 8 weeks. This is known as Termination Pay.

If a person is entitled to Severance Pay, they are entitled to two weeks per year, up to a maximum of 26 weeks. That could amount to as much as 34 weeks’ pay in lieu of notice. Whether you qualify for severance pay would depend on the size of the company and the length of employment.

                    However, the Employment Standards Act is only a guide and does allow you to seek a civil remedy.

The Courts regard the Employment Standards Act as the bare minimum and have ruled as much as 4 times what is suggested in the Act.

                              Amounts of as much as 26 months’ pay have been awarded in the past!

That is where LCB Paralegal Services can help you.
