I was just dismissed yesterday..after my probation had expired of 6 months. I have never been told that I was doing a bad job or not fulfilling my duties, in fact I have built the payroll team, trained new employees while doing this working up to 16 hours a day in addition to weekends. I have been stressed beyond belief and I feel that they did not provide me with an accurate picture of what the job actually entailed. They did provide me with 4 weeks pay in addition if I sign off another 2 weeks pay. Considering the above can I go after them for more? Do I have a case?

Thanks for writing to us. It is extremely important that you not sign anything until you speak with a lawyer. I suggest that you use our Ontario Severance Pay Calculator ( to find out how much severance pay you may be owed and give us a call at the number below right away so that we can assess your termination entitlements and discuss your situation in more detail.
