As someone who let many people go during various layoffs, I know that HR was very strict about what gets said during the termination meeting with the employee.  

"Just stick to the script" they'd say. "Due to changing business conditions, effective immediately you are no longer an employee of xxx company."

They would allow me to give a brief thanks to the employee (if I wanted to), then say that the HR rep will go over the termination package.  Short...and not sweet.

If Jivani's account is accurate, for Bell to tell him that his termination was due to "changing business conditions", then in their response document essentially say that it was performance related probably had Jivani's lawyers grinning from ear to ear.

Jivani released his formal reply to Bell’s response.  Interesting that he may have been considered as a possible replacement for John Moore when he retired.

Imagine if the Queen had to deal with the female dominated patriarchy!   I suspect that the social media editor is “quietly quitting”.

Howard Levitt's advice includes:

Appoint a former judge to get to the bottom of the rot that many are saying exists at Bell Media. The board should also bring back LaFlamme immediately to end the crisis and restore (likely increase) its ratings. The public has spoken loud and clear to Bell Media that the way it treated LaFlamme is unacceptable. Corporate Canada best heed the wakeup call to not be in Bell Media’s shoes tomorrow.

I suspect he's right about other companies needing to take heed.  We may be reaching the age of peek whistle blower.

Some of the comments in the Statement of Claim sound similar to some of the issues raised by Lisa LaFlamme:

"Ms. Whyte (General Manager) did attend, and informed him that his employment was being terminated “as a result of changes to the organization.”

"I want to be sure we are reflecting the company’s strong commitment to Diversity and Inclusion, and that we are building passion in our audience and growing our ratings. We are incredibly challenged right now in both ratings and revenue, and it’s critical that we remain aligned."

Maybe replacing Lisa Hepfner, now that she’s an MP?
