Former Unisphere officer sues for wrongful dismissal
TORONTO, ONT-Victor Sibilia, a former senior officer with Unisphere Waste Conversion, has launched a wrongful dismissal suit against the company and two of its subsidiaries, and against Unisphere president and CEO John Wypich. Alleging wrongful dismissal, oppressive conduct and other causes of action, Sibilia is seeking $10 million in damages. Unisphere dismissed Sibilia for cause in October (ELW oct 18-25) and maintains that his claims are without merit. In addition to defending itself, Unisphere has indicated its intention to countersue Sibilia for damages and has retained the law firm Ogilvy Renault to provide advice in this matter.
