“SNC-Lavalin asking workers to take pay cut for next three months” by Nicolas Van Praet and Christine Dobby, the Globe and Mail

The Globe and Mail quotes Toronto lawyer Shane Todd in an article about SNC Lavalin asking workers to take a pay cut for 3 months.

“It’s absolutely not risk-free [for employers],” said Shane Todd, a partner with Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP. He noted that seeking agreement from employees is preferable to making unilateral pay cuts, but in either case, companies could face claims of constructive dismissal – when the employment relationship changes so much that the employee has effectively been fired – and demands for severance payments”.
