Termination Without Cause
When dismissing employee without cause, employer may generally elect between providing “working notice” to the employee or ending the working relationship immediately by paying compensation “in lieu” of notice. Please note that a claim of wrongful dismissal might be available to an employee terminated during probation.
If you're dealing with losing your job, it can be puzzling in figuring out what to do next. If you think you may have been unfairly let go, you might be considering suing for wrongful termination, or wrongful dismissal. If you're thinking about doing this, you need to understand the language that was used when you were fired. Approaching a case of termination without cause is different from how we'll approach a case of termination for cause.
There are many reasons behind termination without cause, and it can be hard to apprehend why you've been let go when you haven't done anything wrong. If you've been a victim of termination without cause, it's highly possible that your former employer violated some of the laws regarding letting an employee go.
If you're dealing with termination for cause, it's also possible that your employer didn't actually have the right to fire you. This type of termination occurs when the employer claims that the employee committed grave misconduct, or committed an act that was against company policy. Things like stealing from the company, committing illegal acts, or going against the company's mission can all be reasons for termination with cause. If you've been fired with cause, you may still have a case for wrongful termination.
Another common type of employment related legal dispute is known as constructive dismissal. In this type of employment cases, the employer makes the working environment so hostile for the employee that the employee has no choice but to quit. If an employer has been increasingly rude or mean to you at work, has made it impossible for you to excel at your job, or has added more and more responsibilities to your plate to the point where your job became unmanageable, you may have a case for constructive dismissal.
