Can an employer change the structure of its senior management structure in order to accommodate the changing circumstances?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Bolibruck v. Niagara Health System, 2015 ONSC 1595 (CanLII):

In Gillespie v. Ontario Motor League Toronto Club (1988) ACWS 2d 87, Eberle J. concluded that an employer can realign its structure from time to time as its new circumstances required. The employer may feel that one of its executives who is performing several functions should more properly be restricted to one or some of those functions giving him more time and energy to devote to certain of them. An employer is not to be considered locked into any particular arrangement that it may institute at any particular time in its history.
