The Wrongful Dismissal Report offers advantages, not the least of which are the time and cost savings realized by both lawyer and client. Researching notice periods by traditional methods can easily use up several hours of the lawyer's time and a substantial portion of the client's budget. By ordering a Wrongful Dismissal Report search, the lawyer can quickly and cost effectively complete the research needed to advise the client.
Courts have accepted results of such searches as objective surveys of the case law in similar circumstances. For example, see the comments of Rosenberg J. in Slater v. Reebok Canada Inc.  O.J. No. 2922.
We canvass current caselaw in creating our Wrongful Dismissal Report, so it is always up to date.
Although the most common search criteria are age of employee, length of service and position classification, your search can be customized using additional criteria.
Your search can include all provinces, or be limited to specific provinces. This is especially important since Quebec cases often have different notice periods, which can skew the results.
We can provide a Position Report, together with the results of the search, which confirms the appropriate position classification given your facts.
We can also provide, at no additional cost, a draft termination letter or demand letter which incorporates your fact situation and the results of the customized Wrongful Dismissal Report.
Where special circumstances exist, TVA can conduct seperate research into the specifics of your case to see how courts have dealt with similar situations. Additional fees apply and are quoted on a case by case basis. Please call.
