Terminating federally regulated employees (in non-management roles) is more difficult than terminating provincially regulated employees, due to the unjust dismissal provisions in the Canada Labour Code (CLC).
A new Supreme Court of Canada decision in 2016 confirmed that federally regulated employees cannot be dismissed without just cause, similar to the regime for unionized employees.
This program will cover the manner in which federally regulated employees can challenge their terminations, who the provisions of the CLC apply to, the remedies available to employees under the CLC and recent case law establishing what constitutes 'just cause' for dismissal in the federal context.
- Who do the unjust dismissal provisions of the Canada Labour Code Apply to?
- What remedies can an employee seek if they believe they have been unjustly dismissed?
- How does the unjust dismissal complaint process work?
- How do the CLC adjudicators determine whether there was just cause for dismissal?
