Case clarifies what is meant by ‘common employer’

The Ontario Superior Court of Justice recently decided that an employee was wrongfully dismissed and entitled to $20,363 in damages. The problem was that the damage award was made against two companies that were no longer in operation and without assets to pay the judgment. A related company that did have assets to pay the award was found not to be a common employer and was thus not liable.
