Some Common FAQs

  • How can I select an employment lawyer in Toronto?

    It's important to take your time when choosing an employment lawyer in Toronto. Do your research and read reviews of different lawyers before making your decision. Look for a lawyer with experience handling the type of case you are involved in. Make sure that they are licensed and have a good reputation. Consult with potential lawyers, ask them questions while reviewing your matters, and consider the answers they provide. Additionally, consider the fees associated with each associate and determine which one best fits your budget.

  • When should you hire an employment lawyer?

    You should consider hiring an employment lawyer if you are being mistreated at your place of work, such as being harassed or discriminated against. An employment lawyer can help you understand your rights and provide guidance on how to best handle the situation. They can also represent you in any legal proceedings that may arise from the incident. For example, if you believe you are being unjustly terminated, you should consult an employment lawyer for assistance.

  • Do I need an employment lawyer?

    Employment lawyers are crucial for ensuring fair treatment in the workplace. Even if your company has policies to protect employees' rights, it's important to remember that these policies aren't always enforced. An employment lawyer can help ensure that your rights aren't violated by helping you negotiate a better salary or reviewing a contract before you sign it. They can also guide you through filing complaints about workplace discrimination, harassment, and unfair dismissal.

  • If fired without cause, what are an employee's legal rights?

    In Canada, when an employer terminates an employee without just cause, the employee is entitled to receive reasonable notice of termination or pay in lieu of notice. This includes both common law entitlements and additional rights outlined in provincial legislation. Common law entitlements depend on several factors, including length of service, position within the organization, age, current salary, and other relevant circumstances. Your employment lawyer can review your situation and provide tailored advice regarding appropriate notice entitlements and other available remedies. https://sultanlawyers.com/employment-law-services/employers/human-rights-litigation/

  • What forms of discrimination fall under human rights?

    Discrimination based on protected grounds is prohibited and falls under human rights legislation. Protected grounds typically include race, ancestry, ethnic origin, colour, citizenship, place of origin, religious beliefs, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, disability, and age. Discrimination can come in many forms and include behaviours like singling out an individual for negative treatment due to their characteristics, treating someone differently than others in similar situations, and creating a hostile environment.

  • What can I do if I am facing discrimination at work?

    Depending on your situation, there are various steps that you can take if you face discrimination at work. First and foremost, it is essential that you speak with an experienced employment lawyer who can guide you through the necessary steps to resolve the issue. Secondly, it is advisable to contact the Human Rights Commission in your province to file a complaint about the discrimination you experienced. Finally, it may also be beneficial to file a lawsuit if warranted by the severity of the case and if there are financial losses that must be recouped as part of your claim.

  • Can my employer fire me for being pregnant?

    It is unlawful for employers to terminate employees on the basis of pregnancy. If this happens to you, you should immediately consult a qualified employment lawyer. They can review the facts and advise you on your legal options. Additionally, they can explain how applicable laws protect pregnant women from discrimination in the workplace. Depending on the specifics of your case, they may recommend filing a human rights complaint or initiating other legal proceedings such as mediation or arbitration.
