Doing Zilch re Mitigation Reduces Notice Period from 14 to 12 Months :

In Seykors v Rural Municipality of Lake Lenore ( 2019 SKQB 225 ) Richmond J. reduced the notice period by 2 months where the Plaintiff’s mitigation efforts were minimal and he had not applied for even one job.

Why such a minimal reduction you may ask ?

1) The Plaintiff was age 65.

2) He was a snowplow operator.

3) He didn’t finish high school.

4) He lived in a rural area and was not expected to have to move.
