Previously, the Superior Court had recognized U.S. default judgments in favour of victims of terrorist groups sponsored by the Iranian government and, in turn, ordered that Iran’s state assets located within Canada be paid to the victims. The decision was the first of its kind in Canada under the Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act.

Labour Pains: Dishonesty and just cause dismissal

A single act of dishonesty may constitute cause for dismissal, even if the specific incident is of minor consequence. It is not so much the dishonest act itself; rather it is the  revelation of a character that is untrustworthy that provides the legitimate basis for termination of the employment relationship. In Aboagye v. Atomic Energy of Canada, 2017 ONCA 598, the Ontario Court of Appeal upheld the lower court’s decision that an employee’s single act of dishonesty went to the core of the employment relationship and justified dismissal for cause.

Speaker's Corner: Pay transparency laws needed

It’s been 30 years since Ontario adopted its then world-leading pay equity law to end systemic sex discrimination in pay.

Law Times poll

An estate trustee who took an ‘egregious' position in litigation has been ordered to personally pay more than $140,000 in costs. Will this ruling serve as an appropriate caution to executors on how they conduct themselves in litigation?
Yes, this will remind trustees of the potential exposure of significant awards being made against them personally.
No, it’s unlikely this ruling will dissuade executors from engaging in unreasonable conduct during litigation.
