Calculating the Length of Reasonable Employment …

5 hours ago

1. Character of employment refers to the skill set and seniority of the dismissed employee. Employees with highly specialized skill sets may be entitled to a longer notice period if it can be established that there are relatively few employment opportunities for the particular skill set. Historically, courts have awarded highly skilled senior employees longer notice periods than lower level, lesser skilled employees. As an example, all else equal, a vice-president of a company would be expected...
2. Longer service employees are entitled to longer notice periods. That said, short service employees often are awarded more than 1 month of notice for ever year of service. A review of the caselaw demonstrates a tendency, in many decisions, to overemphasize the importance of length of service in relation to the other Bardal factors when determining the appropriate notice period. This tendency is so strong that many people believe that there is a rule of thumb that awards a dismissed employee, a...
3. The Supreme Court of Canada stated in McKinney v. University of Guelph11Mckinney v. University of Guelph, 1990 CanLII 60 (SCC); that a longer notice period will be justified for older, long-term employees who may be at a competitive disadvantage in securing new employment because of their age. Age arguably receives the second greatest weight in many decisions after the dismissed employees length of service.

Overcoming Failure to Strictly Comply with Contractual

8 hours ago

1. The doctrine of first material breach is a common sense principle that is highly appealing to a basic sense of fairness between contracting parties. Under the doctrine, when a party to an agreement materially breaches the contract — that is, fails to perform a contractual obligation that goes to the heart of the negotiated deal — that party is no longer able to take advantage of the benefits of the contract. In other words, the breaching party loses its ability to enforce the contract and the non-breaching party is relieved of its own contractual duties. While the doctrine is relatively straight forward, its application is not always so simple. First, it is not always clear whether a breach is material. Second, questions of “who breached first” are often contested. Earlier this year, the Appellate Division of the New York Supreme Court addressed the application of the material breach doctrine to a party’s failure to strictly comply with contractual notice provisions in U.W. Marx, In...

3 Common Legal Disputes on Construction Projects KPPB LAW

1 hours ago

1. Delays in completing components of or completion of a construction project can have significant and multiple financial impacts on both the owner and the contractor, which can trickle down to the entire team. Sometimes, these delays are easily-resolved and the construction law process doesn’t get involved. However, in some cases, the responsibility falls to the courts to determine who, if anyone, is responsible for the delay and then who must bear the increased costs. There are two general categories into which construction delays typically fall. First, there are inexcusable delays, where the delay is the fault of the contractor or third parties such as subcontractors or material suppliers. Second, there are excusable delays, attributable to circumstances beyond the contractor’s control and, importantly, where the delay is not caused by the fault or neglect of the contractor or third parties for whom the contractor is responsible.

Employment Contracts: The Twelve Most Common Avoid

9 hours ago

1. While arguably less of a "drafting" error than a procedural error, the most common technique used by employees to avoid the scope and ambit of an employment agreement is that the agreement is not supported by "consideration." Consideration is the simple legal principle that each party to a contract must give and receive something in order to make a contract binding. If an employee was already working for an employer at the time of the employment agreement, no "fresh consideration" exists for the written employment agreement. The old legal adage "past consideration is no consideration" often serves to defeat employers' expectations. Traditionally, the court held that the right to continued employment was consideration enough for the enforceability of a written agreement executed after the start of employment. Occasionally, courts have held that where an employer has the legal right to terminate employment, the employer's decision not to exercise the right to terminate the employee is...

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a construction employee be entitled to reasonable notice?

Section 1 of Ontario Regulation 288/01 of the Act explicitly exempts them from such minimum employment standards. However, a long term construction employee may still be entitled to common law reasonable notice, which is much more lucrative than what the Act provides for anyway.

How to limit common law notice in employment contracts?

In order to do so, the contract would have to go further and clearly limit the reasonable notice period to the applicable statutory legislation. It is recommended that employers, when attempting to limit common law notice or severance, do not violate the minimum provincial employment standards legislation.

Do you have to give reasonable notice if there is no contract?

Where there is no provision in your contract, however, you are not restricted to the minimum notice periods set out in the Employment Standards Act. Instead, you are entitled to “reasonable notice,” which is calculated based on the law as it has been developed through legal decisions.

How is revenue recognized on a long term construction contract?

(a) The revenue recognized on a long-term construction contract under the percentage-of-completion method is determined by applying a percentage representing the degree of completion to the total contract price at the end of the accounting period.
