Rudner Law hosts a monthly Q&A show streamed live on Facebook and to Youtube.

Discipline and Dismissal

  • Does it sometimes feel like there are just too many words for dismissal? What’s the difference between a  “layoff” and a “dismissal”? Or “firing” someone versus “letting them go”? What do they all mean and are you using them correctly?
  • When can you fire someone?
  • Do you have to give a warning first? What if they do something unforgivable?
  • How does severance work? How much do we have to pay, and do we have to pay commissions, bonuses, or just base salary?

We get it. You are trying to run a business, and you expect your employees to behave appropriately. You don’t have time to deal with people coming in late, disrespecting their managers or harassing their colleagues. And you do not want employees who either can’t or won’t carry out their duties at an appropriate level. We will help you to determine the best course of action that will minimize your risk.

Sometimes, it’s not an issue of performance or misconduct. You may just need to reduce your labour costs, eliminate a role, downsize, right-size, or whatever the case may be. Or you may have an employee that just doesn’t fit in, or an opportunity to replace an existing employee with someone you think will be better suited to the role. We will explain how dismissal without cause works and dispel all of the myths and misconceptions about severance.

Issues are seldom resolved on their own, so if you have an issue in your workplace, you need to address it. However, the only thing worse than doing nothing is reacting in haste. When issues arise, you need to understand your rights before you act.

Whether the concern is harassment, insubordination, or simply a need to reduce your head count, we understand the law, and we will guide you to take appropriate action without creating liability.
