Our client worked for 4-D Warner Enterprises as a trackmobile operator. Following a train derailment at a railway yard, 4-D dismissed our client for just cause, alleging that he had engaged in misconduct, and denied him any severance pay. Our client sued for wrongful dismissal. The Court ultimately found that Mr. Tymko was not responsible for the derailment incident, and ordered 4-D to pay him severance.
