When employees are fired allegedly with cause, we don’t take a traditional approach, which somewhat limits the cases that we do pursue. However, this also means our strategy is not anticipated by most employers and can force significant employer payouts. Strong indicators as to the suitability of our legal approach include one or more of the following factors: (i) long-term employment, (ii) salaried employment, and/or (iii) employment in Alberta.

Where the specific facts of your employment meet our criteria for legal representation, we actually prefer to represent employees who have been allegedly fired for just cause, since there is little, if anything, at risk. The employer has provided nothing in the form of termination pay or severance pay, and is typically overconfident in its belief that its interpretation of the "incident" is sufficient to justify its refusal to make payment to its former employee. We can therefore pursue an aggressive and intense legal strategy, based on the facts, typically focusing on angles that the employer is unaware of, with it really only being upside for the employee.

Our objective is to deploy our non-traditional strategy to full effect and financially "punish" the employer, for well in excess of what they could possibly fathom. This is made possible by shifting the focus of the litigation away from the employee and the “incident”, and focusing upon the employer and its improprieties. By transferring the emphasis unto the employer, the employee isn’t constantly back peddling and seeking to justify their actions, which isn’t a winning strategy in our professional estimation. Instead, by squarely focusing upon the employer and its actions, we establish the strategic legal advantage to challenge even the largest employers with their high-price legal teams.

Our approach, however, is not for everyone. We have a very specific approach to employee terminations "for just cause", which certain individuals might find too drastic and too aggressive. However, for those individuals who are willling to engage in a serious legal fight, especially where their former employer thought they could get away with providing next to nothing when they were fired, they should seriously consider our non-traditional legal approach. For those individuals whose employment meets our internal criteria to deploy our specialized legal strategy, especially those employed by larger companies (who think they are so strong and powerful to be beyond reproach), our distinct legal approach warrants serious consideration.
