In a recent Ontario Superior Court case, the unofficial rule of thumb of one month of notice per year of service with an upper limit of about 24 months was set aside when an employee was awarded a 30-month notice period. The Court also held that it would have awarded more, 36 months in fact, if the employee had asked for it.
Subject to formal adjudication, section 240 of the Canada Labour Code allows an employer to dismiss a non-union employee who has completed at least twelve consecutive months of continuous employment only if it can show reasonable grounds for doing so.
The Ontario Ministry of Labour has announced that they are in the process of making changes to the mandatory certification classroom joint health and safety committee (JHSC) training to reduce the burden on businesses while maintaining standardized, high-quality training accessible to all workers across Ontario.
