The Ontario Court of Appeal recently addressed the issue of when replacement benefit coverage and a bonus were payable as part of an award of damages in a wrongful dismissal action.  The case of Singer v. Nordstrong Equipment Limited 2018 ONCA 364 is a useful reminder of the key legal principles.  This case is a reminder that all aspects of an employee’s compensation must be continued during a common law notice period including benefits and bonus unless the employer has prepared proper contractual language that disentitles the employee to the benefit and the exclusion conforms with the minimum requirements of the Ontario Employment Standards Act, 2000.   Click here for a detailed account of this decision.
