Dismissal without Cause under the Canada Labour Code heads to the SCC

July 16, 2015

Last week the Supreme Court of Canada granted leave to appeal the Federal Court of Appeal’s decision in Wilson v. Atomic Energy of Canada Limited that upheld an earlier ruling that a federally regulated employer could dismiss a non-unionized employee without cause pursuant to the Canada Labour Code. As is the practice in leave applications, the SCC provided no reasons.

We will continue to monitor progress of the case.
