In Cormier v. 1772887 Ontario Limited
, Christopher Perri and Alex St. John represented Kelly Cormier in a wrongful dismissal action against a company doing business as St. Joseph Communications. When St. Joseph Communications terminated her employment, Ms. Cormier had worked for the company for nearly 23 years. On a summary judgment motion, the court agreed with Mr. Perri and Mr. St. John that: (1) Ms. Cormier was a dependent contractor; (2) Ms. Cormier's contractual termination clause was unenforceable because it violated the ESA; and (3) certain deductions from her pay were contrary to the ESA. Justice Perell awarded Ms. Cormier twenty-one month's notice.
