TGC lawyer Kemily Ho obtained judgment for 12 months’ notice for a 45 year old manager with just under 10 years of service.
Madam Justice Beames ruled that the employee was entitled to compensation for the following items on top of his base salary for his notice period:
a pro-rata portion of an annual bonus;
employer contributions through a stock option plan; and
The judge rejected the former employer’s argument that the employee had failed to mitigate his losses.
TGC lawyer Kemily Ho succeeded on a judicial review of an arbitrator’s decision that a long-term Air Canada employee should be terminated for cause for taking discarded nuts from a first class cabin.
In setting aside the arbitrator’s decision, the Judge expressed “grave doubts” about the arbitrator’s assessment of the employee’s conduct and found that the decision “failed to address” basic questions such as whether the employee’s conduct was so serious as to justify termination after years of service.
