Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
When you say help are you asking for information or for a lawyer to act for you?
The lawyers on this site cannot act for you. I can suggest how to find a lawyer or explain the law.
I am not sure what you are expecting but I cannot afford to work for free. Would you rather not go ahead. All I can do here is explain the law and suggest options you may have.
This has nothing to do with paying me. You cannot pay me. I cannot be your lawyer. This is about the site paying me. The site will pay me if you rate me positively. So I expect that you will do that once we are done if the answer is satisfactory to you.
Here is the law:If an employer wants to dismiss and employee for cause the employer is required to provide the employee with written warnings, unless the employee`s conduct is so extraordinary that immediate dismissal is warranted.As this was not the case then you should consider a claim for wrongful dismissal and seek damages from your employer.Generally the damages would be equal to what you would receive had you been dismissed without cause. If that had been the case you would have been entitled to receive "reasonable" notice or pay in lieu of notice.Generally, in determining what is reasonable notice Courts look at several factors including the length of time you worked for the employer, your age, your position, the likelihood of finding new employment etc.At the high end, if you were in a managerial position, the Court would likely order one month's notice or pay in lieu of notice for each year of employment. If you were not in a managerial position the Court would order somewhat less.What you can do to find a lawyer is one of the following things.You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.Or you can check on a site called lexpert. This is a legal directory of leading lawyers and law firms throughout Canada and is well-respected by the legal community.Here's the link to their website:http://www.lexpert.ca/Directory/DirectoryContent/FindLawyersOrFirm.aspxI hope that helps as a starting point.
