BlackBerry Sued By Over 300 Former Employees

An anonymous reader shares a report: BlackBerry is facing a class-action lawsuit from more than 300 former employees across Canada, according to a news release from law firm Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP. The Waterloo, Ontario-based tech company is accused of denying employees their termination entitlements by transferring them to a partner company and, once they had accepted employment there, handed them resignation letters. The former employees were then allegedly given their final date of work. “BlackBerry’s actions amount to a termination of the employees’ employment,” the law firm said. “This entitles these employees to statutory, common law, and/or contractual entitlements on termination.”
