You're Fired! Just Cause for Dismissal in Canada is a guide for professionals on the law of summary dismissal in Canada, which is a debatable area as there are no hard and fast rules.

It is divided in eight parts and Part I provides an overview of the law of summary dismissal. The Part II covers the various grounds of dismissal like:

  • Dishonesty
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Inappropriate relationship
  • Insolence
  • Insubordination
  • Breach of rules or policies
  • Theft
  • Fraud
  • Harassment
  • Violence in the workplace
  • Abuse of technology
  • Performance issues
  • Off-duty conduct

Part III explains concepts and general principles like after-acquired cause, condonation, probationary employees, and so on. Part IV discusses investigations and explains the importance of conducting proper investigations before terminating an employee for just cause. Part V provides a detailed review of human rights considerations. Part VI explains the litigation process and discusses damage awards in wrongful dismissal claims. Part VII provides practical advice for employment law practitioners advising clients, as well as human resources professionals involved in termination. Part VIII consists of case law summaries.
