  • The Ontario Superior Court of Justice’s decision in Paquette v. Quadraspec Inc. addresses two important issues that employers face: (1) how to properly draft an employment agreement in accordance with the notice provisions in Ontario’s employment standards legislation (the Employment Standards Act, 2000, (“ESA”)); and (2) whether an employee is entitled to severance pay in addition to termination pay upon termination under the ESA.
