Thanks for your question.
How long has the employee worked for the employer for?Is the employee in a union?
The employee is 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 the employee worked for the employer, their age, their position, the likelihood of finding new employment etc.
At the high end, if they 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 they were not in a managerial position the Court would order somewhat less.
Does that answer your question?

I am sorry to hear that. They cannot dismiss you because you are disabled.
They are required by law to try and accommodate your needs and must do so as long as they are reasonable and do not cause them to suffer undue hardship. Otherwise that would be discrimination.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
