Wrongful Dismissal

This term covers the “other reasons” category of unfair dismissals. It’s the gray area of employment law and often involves determining what is fair dealing and what is not.

This may involve employees who are fired for serving on a jury, for refusing to break the law, for refusing to commit perjury on behalf of the company in a court of law, for reporting an unsafe working condition or for reporting a crime committed by a company executive.

It may cover an employee who was fired so that the company could avoid paying a sales commission that was rightfully earned but not paid yet. It might include the breach of a promise where the employee delivered his or her part of an employment contract and the employer refused to meet its part of the agreement or terminated the employee to avoid making good on the employer’s commitment.
