Steinebach v. Clean Energy Compression Corp., 2015 BCSC 460

Our 49-year old client was dismissed after nearly 20 years of service. Following his dismissal and an unsuccessful search for new employment, he retrained and began a new career. We brought an application for summary trial in BC Supreme Court on his behalf, seeking damages against his former employer for wrongful dismissal. The defendant employer argued that our client had failed to mitigate his losses following termination, and sought to have the application dismissed. The court ruled in our client’s favour and awarded him $250,000 in damages, which was the equivalent of 13 months’ salary, commissions, bonus and benefits.
