Hennessy v. Excell Railing Systems Ltd., 2005 CarswellBC 1164, 2005 BCSC 734 (B.C. S.C.).

An employer did not have the right to fire a manager who couldn’t get his employees to function as a team, the British Columbia Supreme Court has ruled.

In July 2002 Edward Hennessy joined Excell Railing Systems Ltd., a manufacturing operation which employed about 25 people. In February 2003 he was concerned about his job security and sent an e-mail to the directors asking about his long-term future at the company. He did not receive a formal reply, but was appointed to the permanent position of general manager on May 1. In November he asked again and was told his job was secure.
