Our 50-year old upper management client was dismissed after 25 years of service. The employer argued that our client failed to mitigate her damages by not making reasonable efforts to seek alternate employment, and introduced expert testimony regarding our client’s mitigation efforts. The court ruled in our client’s favour, finding that her job search was reasonable, and awarded her 18 months’ salary including pro-rated bonus and compensation for loss of fringe benefits.
