Security firm could invoke termination provision

Is the job you’re offering open-ended in duration, or is it for a fixed length of time? Being clear about this in employment contracts can save you money when it comes to a parting of the ways.

Tolsec Canada recently saved significant notice damages by proving that its employment contract with Joseph Sullivan was not for a definite term.

Through his company, Lockport Security, Sullivan competed with Tolsec, installing and monitoring alarm systems. Tolsec purchased Lockport, with the buy-out agreement stipulating that Tolsec would hire Sullivan as sales manager for two years.
