You’re Fired! Just Cause for Dismissal in Canada

Stuart is the author of ‘You’re Fired! Just Cause for Dismissal in Canada.’

“I wrote You’re Fired! because I want to help people understand their legal rights and obligations so they can avoid costly mistakes. When it comes to employment law, an ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure.”

You’re Fired! Just Cause for Dismissal in Canada (Carswell, 2011) is a practical reference guide for employment law practitioners, human resources professionals and business people. It focuses on the law of summary dismissal in Canada and provides a thorough review of the law to help clarify what is and is not just cause for dismissal. The commentary and case studies help readers understand the types of behaviours that can constitute just cause for dismissal, the requirements for appropriate investigations prior to dismissal, and key cases where courts have considered allegations of just cause for dismissal. This well-written and comprehensive textbook provides legal advice to employers, employees, and their legal counsel, as to whether summary dismissal is appropriate in a particular circumstance.
