Injunctions

An injunction is a kind of remedy offered by the court, differing from other remedies in that it is in the form of a court direction that orders one to either do or refrain from doing a certain act. For example, an injunction can prohibit an employee from behaving in a certain manner.

Furthermore, under some unusual circumstances cases, in Ontario the employer is able to acquire a temporary injunction, lasting up to ten (10) days without notice to the employee. To receive an injunction from the court the moving party must produce enough evidence to substantiate the need for an immediate intervention by the court and thus an injunction to curb the behaviour while the issue is being dealt with at the courts. An injunction is considered an extraordinary remedy which is extremely difficult to achieve. It also require rigorous and time-sensitive preparation.
