Employment Lawyer Toronto Free Consultation

We Listen

We are the Dutton Employment Law Group at  Monkhouse Law. After you call to set up your free phone consultation, a licenced legal professional will listen to your story, ask you questions about facts you may have missed and take thoughtful analysis of your employment law issue before providing you an opinion. We will advise you on the best course of action, and provide an estimate of all legal costs.

We Answer

If you were let go (terminated, fired) or have any other questions about employment law (contracts, constructive dismissal, human rights), an employment lawyer will advise if you have a case or an issue we can resolve.

At the end of the consultation, we will advise how we can help, what steps we would take, how long it will take and how much it will cost to retain an employment and labour lawyer.

Phone & Office Consultations

If you prefer, you can make an appointment to meet with an employment lawyer for an in-person consultation at our office in Toronto's Financial District. By appointment only, please. Otherwise, call for your phone consultation today!

An employment law group in Toronto offering free consultations to employees and employers
  • Step 1: You Tell Your Story

    Our goal in an initial consultation is to get all the information we need from you for the lawyer to determine whether your issue requires our law firm's help, and if so, how we can achieve the best result.

  • Step 2: You Ask Questions

    Our secondary goal is to give you peace of mind. We want you to ask us everything (there are no bad questions here). Moreover, asking us questions helps bring out details of your case that you may have missed or thought were not important.

  • Step 3: We Answer your Questions

    We let you know if you have a case, how much it might be worth, how much it might cost, how long it might take, and what your chances of success are.

  • Step 4: We Advise Next Steps

    We will tell you what we will do to try and get success for you. This often means sending a letter, or failing that, filing a lawsuit, on your behalf, to get the matter started quickly.

    Call Before You Sign the Release

    Most terminated, dismissed, fired or laid off employees are owed money from their employer. To get the maximum amount of funds, wrongfully dismissed employees require the services of an employment lawyer to advise them and act on their behalf.

    Toronto Severance Package Review Lawyers

    Severance packages are usually just the minimum an employer thinks it can get away with convincing you to agree to. These severance packages usually have fast approaching dates to supposedly sign them back before the employee "loses" the offer. This is misleading, employees are owed what they are owed, regardless of what the employer offers, and only a lawyer can achieve the maximum on behalf of a wrongfully dismissed employee. Accordingly, prior to signing a release or a severance package, call our Toronto employment law group to speak with an employment and labour lawyer for a consultation.
