Employment Severance Dispute

A client came in stating he had been dismissed from his employment. The employer had given our client a small severance settlement. He had been there for 20 years. We advised our client not to sign the full and final settlement agreement employer had prepared. After some research by our law student, we believed our client was entitled to more severance monies then he had been given. We made a claim through the Employment Standards Branch and Small Claims Court. From attending Hearings for both claims we were successful in getting our client a satisfactory settlement. Our client was very satisfied and proceeded to give a donation to our Society.
