The Ontario Superior Court docket of Justice has granted certification for a class-action lawsuit to proceed with respect to a number of former BlackBerry workers.
The staff said that their work was terminated when BlackBerry allowed its enterprise associate Ford Motor of Canada to supply new employment “without providing any offer of continued employment with BlackBerry.”
A press launch from the plaintiffs’ regulation agency, Nelligan O’Brien Payne, indicated that the workers are searching for severance entitlements from BlackBerry, in addition to “aggravated and punitive damages” for the corporate’s actions.
David Parker, a former worker of BlackBerry, indicated when he began the motion in 2017 that BlackBerry didn’t provide him any certainty about his future with the corporate after going to work for Ford.
A lot of the 300 which are a part of the class-action are primarily based in Waterloo and Ottawa, whereas others are round Ontario and Nova Scotia.
If you happen to suppose you’re an worker that suffered, the regulation agency asks you to join the class-action.
