Why Hire a Toronto Employment Lawyer

If you have been treated unfairly at work or have recently been terminated, you understand the stress and difficulties associated with asserting your legal rights. Many employees attempt to deal with negotiating their employment matters on their own before involving an Employment Lawyer. However employees often may not see all the areas they need to or may say and do things that negatively affect their potential claim. 

Our Toronto Employment Lawyers find creative solutions to clients’ issues regarding Ontario Employment Law and Canadian Employment Law. We will work for you no matter if your case is before the courts, Canada Industrial Relations Board, or the Ontario Labour Relations Board.

Our Employment Lawyers provide experience, knowledge, professional advice, as well as deep knowledge of the legal process. We know the opposing side and are therefore able to provide a strategic advantage as well as a professional edge. We know how to navigate each case through the necessary avenues.

Employment law is highly specialized and requires a lawyer who concentrates in this specific area. The steps in submitting a claim are intricate, involve time limitations and strict policies and guidelines. We are aware of these aspects and can assist you in avoiding unnecessary delays.


Employment Lawyers are educated and trained to understand your workplace matter, apply the legal concepts, use persuasive language and techniques and emphasize the important key points to a decision-maker or the opposing side.

The law is constantly developing, as new cases are decided everyday establishing new legal precedents and new laws are drafted by our legislature. These new laws can affect everything from how workers should be fired, hired, what policies they are subject to, what leaves they take and how they are paid. This knowledge and understanding will help give you options on your workplace issue and hopefully relieve the stress of your issue.
