A little bad faith goes a long way

The British Columbia Supreme Court recently awarded Wallace damages to a worker who was fired, despite the fact that — for the most part — the employer handled the termination properly. What this judgment shows is that even a little bad faith on the part of employers won’t go unnoticed or unpunished by the courts.

Wallace v. United Grain Growers

, opened the door for courts across the country to punish employers who behave in a callous manner during terminations.
