Simon published another article on First Reference Blog. The article entitled “Fresh Consideration and Employment Contracts” examines two recent cases, the Ontario Court of Appeal’s decision in Holland v. Inc., 2015 ONCA 762 and a recent trial decision in Gibbons v. BB Blank Inc., 2016 CanLII 44181 on how companies can make employment contracts that are offered on hiring or a promotion binding. The key is to have the employee sign the contract before commencing his/her duties and to ensure there is fresh consideration for a new contract of employment. A link to the decision can be found here.
