In Staley v. Squirrel Systems of Canada Ltd., 2012 BCSC 739, an employee, Mr. Staley, who worked at Squirrel’s Burnaby head office for approximately 15 years requested to work for Squirrel remotely from Montreal due to his wife being transferred. Squirrel temporarily permitted this arrangement. However after approximately six months the parties were unable to come to an agreement with respect to how the employment relationship would operate. At this time Squirrel wrote to Mr. Staley advising that if he did not return to work on a set date his employment would be terminated.
