Temporary Lay-off

Temporary lay-offs have become far more common in the current pandemic. Given their increasing use, it is important that employees inform themselves of what rights and recourse they have in the event their employer temporarily lays them off. While an employer may make representations that they will call you back, this does not always materialize and you may find yourself without a job for far longer than anticipated. Where an employer fails to do what they are obligated to, you may be eligible to make a wrongful dismissal claim.
