Jeffrey Goodman, Dianne Jozefacki and Stephanie McLoughlin Author a Chapter on Employment Contracts and the State of the Law on Termination Clauses in the Annual Review of Civil Litigation 2020

Jeffrey Goodman, Dianne Jozefacki, and Stephanie McLoughlin recently contributed a chapter titled, “Employment Contracts and the State of the Law on Termination Clauses” to the Annual Review of Civil Litigation 2020 by the Honourable Mr. Justice Todd L. Archibald and the late Honourable Mr. Justice Randall Scott Echlin. The chapter analyses the courts’ ongoing hesitancy to enforce “minimum standards” termination clauses that limit employees’ severance to an amount below their common law entitlements, and suggests a different approach to drafting these clauses in an effort to reduce the risk of successful challenges to their enforceability.

The Annual Review of Civil Litigation has been providing coverage of significant litigation issues for 20 years and is regularly cited by appellate courts across Canada including the Supreme Court of Canada. This year’s 20th Anniversary edition features 18 articles on current issues in civil litigation written by expert civil litigators.
