Maternity Leave and Reasonable Notice for Employment Termination

Posted by Johannes Schenk on December 8th, 2009 — Posted in Employment Law, Human Rights Law

In case it wasn’t obvious, reasonable notice periods are suspended by maternity leave. Don’t terminate your pregnant employees or employees that are on maternity leave. See the following cases:

Whelehan v. Laidlaw Environmental Services Ltd.

Winterburn v. Domtar Inc., 2002 BCSC 1418

Wells v. Patina Salons Ltd., 2003 BCSC 1731
