Simon Published another article entitled “Motion for summary judgement raises questions about efficiency of pre-trial resolution” on First Reference Blog. This case explored the common issue of assessing an employee’s common law notice period at the termination of employment and the efficiencies involved in settling the matter through voluntary negotiations or pursuing the matter by way of a motion for summary judgement. Given the setting of notice periods by judges is often more of an “art” then a “science”, this case highlights the costs involved to employers in choosing not to settle cases through voluntary negotiations.
