After our client was dismissed for “just cause”, he filed a claim with the Employment Standards Branch (ESB) seeking monetary amounts under the Employment Standards Act (the Act). The ESB found in our client’s favour, ruling that the employer did not have cause to fire him and ordering it to pay him the amounts he was entitled to under the Act. The employer appealed this decision to the Employment Standards Tribunal (EST), arguing that the ESB had failed to follow principles of natural justice in reaching its decision. The EST dismissed the employer’s appeal, concluding that the ESB had properly held that there was no just cause for our client’s dismissal.
