An Ontario Superior Court judge had to determine what bonus a salesman was entitled to because the bonus provision in his contract was unclear.

Michael Lipari was hired by Ecolosite Inc. in 1999 to boost sales for its environmental disposal business. He had worked for nine years for a company in a similar field, earning about $100,000 a year.
