Employment Lawyer Toronto Consultations


We Listen

After you call to set up your consultation, an employment lawyer will listen to your story, ask you questions about facts you may have missed and take thoughtful analysis of your employment issue before providing you an opinion.

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 First Canadian Place in Toronto’s Financial District. By appointment only, please. Otherwise, call for your phone consultation today!

  • 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.

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 firm to speak with an employment and labour lawyer for a consultation.
