Expert: Howard Levitt

Shirley asked:

What are the time limitations on initiating a civil suit for wrongful dismissal and more specifically constructive dismissal in Ontario. Is there any way of extending those time limitations?

The time limitation is two years and this can not be extended. However, in any pre-2004 cases the time limitation is six years.
