Heeney Vokey LLP’s Toronto employment lawyers are experienced and knowledgeable advocates in the area of wrongful dismissal actions, and particularly those in which an employee is terminated for cause. Termination of employment for “just cause” has been termed the “capital punishment” of employment law.

Most just cause cases involve a number of complex factors, and in this respect a strong and effective advocate can be a critical asset. Robinson Heeney LLP’s employment lawyers provide clear and comprehensive advice to employees that is cost-effective, timely and ensures that clients are afforded the compensation or severance that is their entitlement in the circumstances.

Wrongful dismissal cases which involve dismissal for cause arise when an employer terminates an employee without any notice or compensation, which requires the employer to prove the existence of serious misconduct. Dismissal for cause is a highly onerous standard to prove for an employer.

Our Toronto-based lawyers provide employee clients with a full assessment of their rights and options in respect of wrongful dismissals for cause. It is important to consult a legal professional both experienced and knowledgeable in just cause terminations and the issues involved. Often, a compensation or severance can be negotiated or awarded to employees wrongfully terminated for cause. Our firm always endeavours to resolve matters with your former employer amicably through a negotiated settlement, but we also have the skill and expertise to litigate matters when that is in the best interest of the employee and the case.
