Compensation pour licenciement injustifié - montant librement déterminé par la cour: Oui

  • See sec. 79 (1) and (2) LC.

Compensation pour licenciement injustifié - limites légales (plafond en mois ou methode de calcul définie):
For claims arising from an invalid termination", the law distinguishes between 2 situations depending on wether or not the employee has notified the employer that she or she insists on continuation of the employment:

1) Termination is invalid and the employee insists on keeping his/her employment: Compensation amounts to the average earnings from the day he/she announced to the employer that he/she insists on keeping employment, to such time for which the employer enables him/her to keep working, or until a court rules on termination of the employment relationship. If the overall time is more than 9 months, the court may award proportionate reduction for the period exceeding 9 months [New as of 1 Sept. 2011: previously 12 months].

2) Termination is invalid and the employee does not insist on keeping his/her job: the employment relationship is deemed to have been terminated by mutual agreement. If " the employment relationship was terminated in an invalid manner immediately or, within the probationary period, on the day when the employment relationship was due to terminate", the an employee is entitled to wage compensation in the amount of average monthly earnings for a two-month notice period".
No such compensation is due "an invalid notice was given, upon expiration of the period of notice".
