Siskinds commenced class proceedings in 1994 alleging breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation and misstatement against the Defendant, Laidlaw Carriers Inc., in relation to early retirement packages offered in 1988 to employees who, at that time, had more than 10 years of service with the company.

The Laidlaw class action, represented by Kenneth R. Schweyer is comprised of approximately 30 individuals who were employees of Laidlaw, and who received the early retirement offer in 1988.

Justice Cumming certified the action as a class proceeding in February 2000. In November, 2009, the parties entered into a Settlement Agreement which resolves the litigation. The settlement was approved and the settlement funds have been distributed.
