Stoody v. Kennedy et al.Posted March 4, 2016
(2004, CA); Cynthia acted for a director and the officers of a corporation at trial and on appeal, arising from a claim of a dismissed employee for oppression. The Court of Appeal agreed with Cynthia’s submissions that officers were not personally liable for oppression in the circumstances, and that the director was not liable in oppression as a result of his attendance, as corporate representative, at the prior wrongful dismissal trial. The common law duties of directors and officers are owed to the corporation they serve, not to dismissed employees. Leave to the Supreme Court was dismissed.
