As she gave you two week's notice there are no grounds for suing her for wrongful dismissal.

But she should have provided you with your final paycheque and so you can file a complaint with the Employment Standards Branch and they will assist you in getting that paycheque.

Here is a link to their contact information:

Why did you close this post? Do you feel it is fair to cause me to work for free simply because I was honest and so could not give you the answer you were hoping for but provided the correct one?

Please be fair and rate me so I can get credit for my work or at least show me the respect of explaining why you closed the question.
