HR Law: Back to Basics - HR Professional Now

hrprofessionalnow.ca [cached]

"On a practical level, it means that employees and employers can obtain results without having to wait for trial and sometimes before the employee has secured new employment," said Janice Payne, partner at Nelligan O'Brien Payne LLP, based in Ottawa.
Judges are already showing a willingness to grant dismissed employees early decisions about the length of the notice period they're entitled to, even when allegations of cause or failure to mitigate charges are involved. "From an access to justice perspective, this is an important and welcome development," said Payne. Another recent decision by the Ontario Court of Appeal is getting plenty of attention, too. In that case, the court held that there was no obligation to mitigate damages when an employment contract was silent on the issue. "The courts now require clear language to give credit to an employer for income earned post termination or to order relief if the employee has not made appropriate effort to mitigate," said Payne. When it comes to potential litigation, document everything, says Payne. Keep records accurate, up to date and accessible. "HR professionals are on the front line in terms of providing necessary and effective litigation support to their employer and legal counsel," said Payne.
