But as with any other employee transgression, the question of whether you can terminate employees for moonlighting or running a second business depends on an array of factors, as illustrated by the following cases.

Insolence, Insubordination And After-Acquired Evidence Of Just Cause

On November 9, 2021, the B.C. Supreme Court released its decision in the case of Golob v. Fort St. John (City), 2021 BCSC 2192.

The case concerned a wrongful dismissal claim against the City of Fort St. John by its former Deputy Fire Chief.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Employers have a very high bar to meet when terminating for “just cause”. This has left employers asking the question: “Can employers ever successfully terminate for cause?” This webinar will demonstrate that just cause terminations are defendable when an employer has implemented appropriate processes and strategies. Specific topics for discussion will include:

  • Common grounds for “just cause”
  • Off-duty misconduct
  • Performance management
  • Employers’ duty to warn
  • Investigating and documenting misconduct
  • Special considerations for unionized employers
  • Communicating just cause terminations
