  • A recent Supreme Court of Ontario decision highlights a serious problem which can arise with a poorly drafted employment agreement or an ill-considered severance package. The case involved the termination by Canac Kitchens of a long-term employee, Luis Romero Olguin. Olguin was 55 years old and had 22 years service with Canac when he was terminated without cause as part of an overall reduction in headcount.
