Although wrongful dismissal is the best known type of employment litigation, there are all kinds of disputes related to the workplace.
Our lawyers are familiar with all aspects of workplace disputes and can develop effective strategies to take on a variety of issues, including:
- Contract negotiation
- Breach of contract
- Human rights claims, including discrimination and harassment
- Workplace privacy

For both employers and employees, termination is one of the areas that is the most serious, contentious and emotional. Both sides need accurate information about their rights and obligations concerning termination.
If you are an employer, you need to know the necessary steps to protect yourself when terminating an employee so that you are not subject to litigation.
Employees need to know possible steps they may need to take if they have been wrongfully dismissed.
Our lawyers will listen to your situation, ask questions to clarify your position and answer your questions about:
- Adequate notice periods
- Just cause
- Suitable settlements that take into account the terms of the contract as well as the employee's experience, salary and length of service to the company
