Why Hire a Toronto Employment Lawyer

Those who have been treated unfairly at work or have recently been terminated understand the stress and difficulties associated with asserting their 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 for improvement and may say or do things that negatively affect their potential claim. 

An Employment Lawyer mainly assists individuals not covered by a union or collective agreement whereas a Labour Lawyer primarily deals with unionized employees. Both lawyers provide experience, knowledge, professional advice, as well as deep knowledge of the legal process. He or she may also be familiar with the opposing side which could provide a strategic advantage as well as a professional edge. Skilled Employment Lawyers at Monkhouse Law in Toronto know the process and how to navigate each case through the necessary avenues.

The areas of law are highly specialized and require a lawyer who concentrates in that specific area. The steps in submitting a claim are intricate, involve time limitations and strict policies and guidelines.

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 you get a handle on your workplace issue and hopefully relieve the stress of your issue.
