by Mike Caswell

Synex International Inc.'s former president, Gregory Sunell, has filed a wrongful dismissal lawsuit against the company in the Supreme Court of British Columbia. He complains that the company fired him from his job of 17 years with no cause or notice. He is seeking damages in lieu of appropriate notice.

The allegations are contained in a brief notice of claim that Mr. Sunell filed at the Vancouver courthouse on May 27, 2019. The suit identifies Mr. Sunell, 66, as an employee of Synex since July 1, 2001. He says that he was the company's president for the entirety of his time there.

Mr. Sunell's firing, as set out in the suit, came on Jan. 11, 2019. He says nothing about the circumstances, only claiming that Synex fired him "without cause and with immediate effect." The terms of his employment required the company to provide reasonable notice before it fired him, Mr. Sunell says.

The suit does not state exactly what would constitute reasonable notice, nor does it say exactly how much money Mr. Sunell is seeking. His salary, when the company fired him, was $195,300. He also received extended health benefits and participated in the company's stock option plan.

The remainder is available to Stockwatch subscribers.
