I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Are you asking about a termination that happened 21 years ago? I am checking to ensure there is no typo as there was in the word before the number.

Thanks

It is typo

Was it over 2 year or under? This is vital.

Less than 2 year
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

That is fine then. You are not out of time. You have two years from the time you were dismissed to start the claim.

Does that fully answer your question?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.

In Alberta, if after 2 years I won't be able to start a claim, right, just confirming.
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

The limitation period for suing in Alberta is two years from the time the claim was discovered or could have been discovered so in a wrongful dismissal claim it would almost always start to run when you were first dismissed so you have to start the lawsuit within the two years or it will be too late.

Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
