If you are terminated from your job, you may be entitled by law to "severance pay" under the Employment Standards Act of Ontario. One of the conditions may be that your former employer had a annual payroll of $2.5 million or more when you were terminated.
Now, in Ontario, this test is based on your former employer’s total, annual payroll around the world (globally), not only in Ontario.
Therefore, if you are terminated, especially by a company that operates outside of Ontario, you and your lawyer should consider if you may be entitled by law to severance pay under Ontario’s legislation (which you do not need to sue to receive) and carefully review the conditions, including this one.
