TGC Lawyers Kemily Ho and Blair Curtis were successful counsel in this wrongful dismissal case which was decided in November of 2016.
Ms. Ho and Mr. Curtis won judgment of 12 months’ notice for a 45 year old employee with almost 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
- pension contributions.
The judge rejected the employer’s argument that the employee had failed to mitigate his losses.
