Supreme Court of Canada denies leave to appeal in Soost v. Merrill Lynch Canada employment termination case
The trial judge in this case had determined that the employer did not have just cause to terminate Mr. Soost's employment and had awarded him damages as follows:
- $600,000 on account of his notice period; and
- $1.6 million in damages to his reputation and book of business or goodwill. This award was made pursuant to the principles expressed in Honda v. Keays 2008 SCC 39.
On appeal, the Alberta Court of Appeal quashed the $1.6 million damages award. (The notice period damages were not appealed).
