Just a technical question.
My employment contract states that notices must be served by Courier, Mail or Email and that my notice period is 30 days from service.
The NS Labor Code states:
Notice of termination by employer
75 (1) Every employer required by Section 72 to give notice of termination shall give notice in writing addressed to each person whose employment is to be terminated and shall serve the notice personally or by registered mail.
I was personally handed an NoT (without cause) on July 19th but had to request an email copy which I received on Aug 2nd.
Do I have grounds to say that my 30-day notice period begins on Aug 2nd or does the Labor Standards overrule this?
I'm being incredibly petty about this because although I don't mind about the lay-off, the company is sinking, and I don't want to give them leeway to abuse process, something they have been doing all along.
