Simon Published another article entitled “Ontario Court of Appeal suggest deference to trial judge in interpretation of termination clause” in First Reference Blogs about a recent Ontario Court of Appeal decision that interpreted a termination clause and whether or not the clause rebutted the presumption of common law notice and limited the employee’s entitlements to the minimum entitlements set out under the Ontario Employment Standards Act, 2000. The Court of Appeal chose to defer to the trial judge’s analysis without fully considering whether or not the clause complied with the Employment Standards Act, 2000, so its impact on future decisions is questionable because it depends on the facts of each case. A copy of the decision can be found here.
