Employee or Contractor? Termination Compensation Calculator

Cutting-Edge Research

MyOpenCourt analyzes thousands of past cases to predict legal outcomes. We control the quality of our results by building our own datasets and algorithms. Learn more about our research at the Conflict Analytics Lab at Queen’s University.

Ways MyOpenCourt Helps

The relationship between an individual and a business is what determines employment status, not the label given to it. Determine employment status (employee or a contractor), and entitlement to minimum wage, vacation pay, overtime, and/or termination compensation under Canadian law.
Use the Classification Tool
Calculate how much termination compensation an individual may qualify for, and learn whether an individual has been laid off legally.
