This article explores the outcome Ruston v. Keddco MFG. (2011) Ltd. where an employee was terminated without cause. The employer had failed to act fairly and used intimidation tactics when the plaintiff sought a claim against his former employer. The plaintiff was awarded a significant financial sum as the trial judge found that the employer acted in bad faith.
