What is the difference between the provisions of an employee’s rights on termination from an employee's employment plan and those of the employee's termination notice?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from O'Reilly v. IMAX Corporation, 2019 ONCA 991 (CanLII):

The trial judge found that the provisions of the plans dealing with the employee’s rights on termination were “virtually identical”: Kieran v. Ingram Micro Inc., [2001] O.J. No. 4318 (S.C.), at para. 60. He held that “the language in the plans in the instant case clearly contemplates a termination made ‘unlawful’ by no, or too little, notice and provides that in determining the date of termination, any continuing compensation or salary in lieu of notice is to be disregarded”: at para. 66.
