That is wrong. There is no rule of 1 or 2 weeks' pay per year worked where common law severance is concerned. Multiple factors determine the amount of severance.

Not true. It is VERY difficult for an employer to establish a "for cause" dismissal, even if you do something wrong.

Wrong. Many independent contractors are actually EMPLOYEES, and owed severance upon termination.

Incorrect. Short service employees not only receive severance, but significant amounts of severance.

Not even close. Your legal rights don't expire by the end of the week. You actually have TWO YEARS to pursue severance. Don't sign off on a severance offer before we review it to ensure that your full rights are respected!

Ask a Question

Are you REALLY an Independent Contractor? Many contractors are, in fact, employees, but have been misclassified by their employer. Bill 148 was just passed into law, and brings a risk of fines, penalties and orders to pay severance to terminated contractors for employers who incorrectly label employees as independent contractors.

Employment Lawyer Lior Samfiru explains the important differences between the two positions, and what to do if you have been misclassified.
