I have been working for a dental office for more than 30 years. I am the manager. I was responsible for payroll, account payables, all accounting for the office and 2 of the dentists' corporations. I do all the tax also. The office was sold Jan 31, 2024 and I no longer do any financial things. I just supply the staffs payroll information. Is this considered conductive dismissal? Also I believe the new owner plans to eliminate our medical benefits. The owners pay for employee premiums. Can they eliminate benefits without notice? Also I am on salary and not paid hourly. The new owners and I seem to have a different opinion on what that means. Can you clarify that as well?

Thank you for your question. In some instances, an employer's unilateral change to the terms and conditions of an employee's employment may result in a constructive dismissal. However, in order to provide a more fulsome assessment, we will need to review the specific terms of your employment, including but not limited to your employment contract/agreement. Please contact us at your earliest convenience to schedule a formal consultation.
