Agreement by Computer Click

Battiston v. Microsoft Canada Inc. 2021 Ont CA

An employee who was terminated and was claiming compensation for unvested stock claimed that he did not know that his stock was unvested as it was being issued. However, for 16 years the employee had confirmed by computer click that he had received emails that notified him about the vesting provisions for the stock awards and accepted their terms. The fact that he did not read the emails or the vesting provisions disentitled him from claiming that he had no notice of the vesting provisions.
