Notice Period for 70 Year Old Plaintiff Reduced
Date: July 14, 2014
In a recent decision, Kotecha v. Affinia, the Court of Appeal for Ontario reduced the 24.5 months’ notice that had been awarded to a 70 year old plaintiff, holding that there were no exceptional circumstances to justify the award. While the Court found that it was unlikely the employee would obtain similar employment, the award was excessive and was reduced to 18 months’ notice, less 11 weeks’ working notice.
