Experienced Wrongful Dismissal Lawyer in Vancouver BC – Tim Louis
Have you lost your job?
If you’ve lost your job without a valid reason, you may be entitled to financial compensation. For over three decades, Tim Louis has been fighting for the rights of employees who have been wrongfully dismissed. Call (604) 732-7678 today for a free telephone consultation.
When you are fired, your employer must have a valid reason. A downturn in business or downsizing are not valid reasons. If your employer can’t prove unacceptable conduct on your part, you have the right to receive financial compensation. This is called “Termination Without Cause“.
Get the Compensation You Deserve When Wrongfully Dismissed
The amount of financial compensation you receive depends on how long you’ve been employed before being wrongfully dismissed. As a general rule, you are entitled to 4-6 weeks of severance pay for every year of service with the company.
You are also entitled to 4-6 weeks of notice for every year you worked before your wrongful termination. This is called the notice period. If you decide to sue your employer and win, the court will award you an amount equal to the income you would have earned during the notice period, less any income you earned during that time.
Act Quickly and Document Your Efforts to Find Alternative Employment
If you’ve been wrongfully dismissed, it’s important to start looking for a new job right away. You must document your job search efforts, as failing to do so may result in a reduced award if you go to court.
