This month Daniel Lublin was once again successful in obtaining one of the lengthiest severance awards for a Canadian employee. The Court awarded his client 24 months payment of salary and benefits following her termination. The Court entirely accepted Mr. Lublin’s position that even with his client’s competence and experience she would have a difficult time obtaining a similar job and deserved significant compensation. The court also agreed that that his client’s age (60 years-old) and her 30 years of dedicated service were critical factors that the employer must not ignore.
