British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from Ostrow v. Abacus Management Corporation Mergers and Acquisitions, 2014 BCSC 938 (CanLII):

Where there is equal interest by both the employer and employee in forming the new employment relationship, courts have found that the employee was not “induced.” (Wright v. Feliz Enterprises Ltd., 2003 BCSC 267).
