TOP Severance Employment Lawyers Calgary
Groundbreaking severance ruling in landmark Alberta case by Osuji & Smith Employment Lawyers
For the first time in Alberta, a summary trial for wrongful dismissal awarded 2 years’ severance pay to a non-management employee. Mr. Steven Oostlander initially came to Osuji & Smith with no knowledge of his rights after dedicating over half his life to one employer and being suddenly terminated. Charles Osuji, Amanda Jacinto, and the team at Osuji & Smith poured their hearts into the case, resulting in praiseworthy success.
This summary trial is important because it sets a precedent for future employees of Alberta who may have been wrongfully dismissed. Prior to this decision, no Alberta non-management employee had ever been awarded a 24-month severance package at a summary trial in recent times.
The team at Osuji & Smith has blazed a new trail. Their success in this landmark case has laid the groundwork for future wrongful dismissal cases. Their hard work and commitment to the best interests of their clients has paid off for Mr. Oostlander and the many clients who have trusted them with their legal challenges.
