OTTAWA - BlackBerry says it has met all of its obligations to employees who allege in a proposed class-action lawsuit that they lost severance entitlements after being transferred to another employer.
In a statement of claim on behalf of more than 300 former BlackBerry employees, an Ottawa law firm says BlackBerry (TSX:BB) has stated the transfer was "not a sale of business," meaning the employees will lose all of their years of service entitlements without any compensation.
