I have gotten to know Stuart over the period of time I have been consulting and he has always willingly provided top-notch advice in the area of employment law. I have purchased his textbooks, ”You’re fired – Just Cause for Dismissal in Canada” and have found them to be an invaluable source of information and refer to them frequently. There is no doubt that he is a leader in the field of employment law and I would recommend him to anyone that required legal advice and guidance. One of the things that impresses me most about Stuart is his tireless contribution to the field of employment law and his willingness to offer support wherever and whenever he can.

Stuart writes about the deductibility of EI and CERB benefits from severance payments for First Reference Talks

July 9, 2021
This issue has arisen in several recent mediations that I have conducted. As regular readers will know, Employment Insurance benefits are usually deducted from money paid out in lieu of notice of dismissal. At mediation, the plaintiff will be asked if they received EI benefits; if they did, then a mechanism for obtaining a statement of account/debt from Service Canada, and a holdback of funds to cover any repayment obligation, is typical.
