[author: Matthew Curtis]

The Supreme Court of Canada has granted leave to hear the case of Richard Waterman v. IBM Canada Limited,2011 BCCA 337, on whether employer-funded pension benefits that were paid after an employee’s termination should have been deducted from damages resulting from a wrongful dismissal. Both the British Columbia Supreme Court and Court of Appeal held that pension benefits paid during the notice period were not to be deducted from the damages awarded by the Court.
